Catalyst Information Center Guide to Benchmarking

Finding reliable, updated, and comparable benchmarking information can be difficult, especially within certain countries and industries. Sometimes it is a matter of knowing where to look. Other times, however, the information may not exist.

Companies and firms are often reluctant to publicly share workforce and workplace metrics with peers and competitors. This guide provides a summary of both the better- and some lesser-known benchmarking resources. It also includes information on Catalyst’s Vital Signs, which supports Catalyst member organizations’ internal benchmarking efforts and can be used in conjunction with—or instead of—external benchmarking. Finally, organizations seeking additional, custom benchmarking data will find a list of third-party benchmarking service providers at the end of the guide.
