Market Insight and

Without an understanding of whether your reward structure or employee proposition are attractive in the market, you risk losing both employees and potential candidates to other firms. Yet all too often, competitor analysis often falls to the bottom of the to-do list.

Our in-depth knowledge of the market, combined with extensive research and benchmarking capability, means we can give you the insight you need to compete for the best consulting talent. 

Remuneration Benchmarking

  • How much are your competitors paying for similar roles?
  • What does their reward structure look like? 
  • What sales and utilisation targets do consultants have in other firms?
  • How should you structure your bonus to reward performance?

Competitor Analysis

  • Which organisations are you competing with when it comes to attracting and retaining key talent?
  • What are candidates looking for when they make a career move? 
  • How can you differentiate your employee proposition to attract and retain the best people?
  • How competitive is your benefits package? And does it really matter?
