Global Coverage and Perspective

The world is changing, and we’re well positioned to help you evolve to meet the growing challenges and opportunities. In today’s global economy, we’ve made it easier to analyze your firm’s competitive positioning consistently across your firm, across sectors and around the world — in one place. Our survey structure has one globally consistent job framework spanning financial services and regions. Each employee is matched to a benchmark position specifying the person’s geography, sector, job function and level in a consistent manner. Not only does this make your process for submitting surveys easier, but you can also seamlessly conduct analyses across functions and locations.


People Analytics

Building the workforce of the future mandates innovative, one-of-a-kind tools that dive deeper into data, provide instant benchmarks, and deliver actionable insights so you can transform risk into advantage. Driven by our proprietary data, technology, and industry expertise, our suite of solutions was designed to address critical workforce issues, including turnover, people cost and the rising challenge of pay equity. We’re here to help you unlock insights and reap the advantages of an analytics-driven approach to HR.

Pay Equity

Pay equity is arguably one of the most important compensation conversations of our time, spanning firms of all sizes, industries and geographies. It’s not just a matter of legal compliance, but an essential element of your firm’s human capital strategy. By deploying smart tools to track, monitor and sustain solutions, organizations can achieve and maintain parity in pay and minimize potential pay equity challenges.

From the initial pay equity analysis to long-term remediation strategies, we partner with our clients to develop an integrated pay equity ecosystem ─ combining advisory and technology offerings ─ to ensure risks are tracked and managed on an ongoing basis. Learn more about our approach to creating lasting change here.

Comprehensive Advice

Let’s work together to build rewards programs needed to make the workforce of the future a reality. Our deep industry expertise and advisory knowledge in total compensation benchmarking and total rewards optimization, career framework, job architecture design and incentive plan design will empower your firm to stand out from the competition in a clear and compelling way.

Market Practices Insights

Each year, we conduct studies designed to enhance and supplement compensation market data. Having a deep understanding of changing human capital strategies by sector, industry and region is critical.
