Who We Are

The Online Research Unit (The ORU) is one of Australia’s leading online research organisations.

We conduct social and market research, such as opinion polls and consumer, business and healthcare surveys for a range of clients including some of Australia’s best-known corporations and Local, State and Federal governments.

Having a strong and varied client base ensures you have a wide variety of interesting surveys on topics such as Government issues, the trialling of new products, and how to improve existing goods & services

Most social policy and major commercial decisions in Australia are preceded and guided by research, making research an important part of Australia’s economic growth and social development.

By giving us your voice and opinions on these issues, you can make a difference.

We value your feedback and reward you with our exclusive monthly prize draw, store gift vouchers, and other exciting gifts.

All of our surveys are analysed in aggregate form only, and no individual responses are singled out.

The ORU is a member of the Australian Data and Insights Association (ADIA) and European Association of Opinion and Marketing Research (ESOMAR) and as such comply with Australian and Global industry standards and guidelines.

Currently our staff are all working from home as part of the COVID-19 restrictions and as such cannot answer phone calls or return phone messages.

Your feedback is important to us. If you have any comments or queries please contact us at support@theoru.com.au and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

Stay safe and thank you for your support and understanding.
