Gallup, Inc., is primarily a research-based performance-management consulting company. Originally founded by George Gallup in 1935, the company became famous for its public opinion polls, which were conducted in the United States and other countries. In 1988, 4 years after Gallup died, Selection Research purchased it from its heirs. SRI wanted the Gallup name to use on its polls, which gave them more credibility and higher response rates. Today the poll is used to gain visibility. Some of Gallup's key practice areas are employee engagement, customer engagement and well-being. Gallup has more than 40 offices in 27 countries. World headquarters are in Washington, D.C. Operational headquarters are in Omaha, Nebraska. Its current Chairman and CEO is Jim Clifton. There are about 2000 employees in the privately held company, working in four divisions: Gallup Poll, Gallup Consulting, Gallup University, and Gallup Press. (via Freebase)
