RDI Research Facility

RDI Cincinnati Research Facility Re-opening with New COVID-19 Safety Practices

Due to our concern for employees, clients, and participants, RDI temporarily closed our research facility in Northern Kentucky (A suburb of Cincinnati) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our facility is re-opening for in-person interviewing but we are implementing new safety practices to ensure a safe research environment.

Limiting In-house Research Project Groups

We will be limiting our in-house research projects to groups of no more than four respondents. Larger studies can be conducted using one of our local hotel conference rooms to allow for sufficient social distancing practices.

Additional Protocols

Following are a few of the many protocols that we will be implementing:

  • All staff members will be wearing masks and gloves. Participants and clients are required to wear masks when entering the facility and when in common areas
  • Respondents will wait in their vehicles until notified by text it is time to start each session. They will use a separate entrance and be escorted directly to the interview suite.
  • Body temperatures will be checked via a no-touch infrared forehead thermometer for everyone entering the facility
  • The main reception desk will be outfitted with an acrylic divider to ensure the safety of our staff, clients, and participants
  • Staff members will sanitize and disinfect all common areas and research suites prior to and between each session
  • Fresh one-time usage supplies will be provided for each discussion session

RDI Management will continue to monitor state and CDC guidelines and recommendations and make any necessary changes based on the current information that is available.

In-person Interviewing and Recruiting

In addition to our in-person interviewing, we continue to offer expert recruiting services for virtual studies or ethnography research.
