Benchmarking will give you insights on costs and volume of your support staff and management (overhead) compared to other companies in your industry or sector. In other words, we will provide you with strategically relevant information about your overhead that will help you manage and control your overhead costs. Companies that participated in our previous Overhead Cost Benchmarks, were able to reduce costs of overhead and to improve the quality of internal support functions and their service delivery.
Benchmarking provides objective information
Benchmarking is fact-based and therefore an excellent way to help reduce discussions about overhead to an objective level. The key to objectivity lies in our well-tested methodology that ensures comparability among participants. Only then can relevant insights be generated. We don’t compare apples with pears!
Our methodology ensures high-quality results that are reliable and valid. We achieve this by ensuring the necessary data-comparability in different ways. For example, we only compare organizations that operate in the same sectors. We also group organizations that have a comparable primary process in the same reference group. Thereby, it goes without saying that our benchmarking is anonymous and no firm-level data will be reported or shared with your competitors.
We are currently conducting a large-scale benchmark in the services sectors (1) Engineering and Construction, (2) Information Technology and (3) Insurance and Financial Services. Subscribe now to participate and gain insights on where you stand in your sector!
