Beyond Compensation Benchmarking

Attracting and retaining the workforce of the future means looking beyond pay. We work with clients to provide an objective perspective into how their firms compare with peers across human capital trends, employment practices and performance alignment, making our market practice studies the perfect companion piece to compensation benchmarking. Use the links below to explore the topics we cover in our study offerings:


Diversity and Inclusion

As developing a diverse and inclusive workforce becomes a clear business priority, it’s time for HR leaders to act. Understanding how your firm’s workforce diversity and polices compares with that of other leading firms is the key to getting started.

With this study, you’ll gain key insights into diversity ratios for employee groups across gender and race, new initiatives to increase diversity, and whether formal diversity policies increase workforce diversity. Contact us for study availability in your industry and region.

Short- and Long-Term Incentives

When it comes to making an offer to a prospective hire, base salary is only the beginning. Often, the decision to accept or reject an offer hinges on the incentives a company provides.

Our multi-sector, global study includes quantitative and qualitative data on long-term incentives and mandatory deferral plan practices and covers types of plans, coverage, eligibility criteria, vesting schedules and more. We also offer region- and industry-specific coverage, including asset management and wealth management.

Turnover and Severance

It’s inevitable even the strongest workforce will experience employees leaving the organization. The key is to understand why your people are leaving, at what rate, and how attrition compares to your peers.

Our studies provide key insights into how your firm’s severance policies compare with peers, turnover levels and trends by function and seniority. Studies are available by industry, region and across sectors.
