Benchmarking Studies

People Count

Benchmark key HR and workforce management metrics against others in the sector, identify areas for improvement, build a case for change, and track progress.

Why do People Count?

Hundreds of organisations have taken part in our annual People Count study, since it began in 2002. It provides you with the online tools to dig deep into your own results, and drill down into primary focus areas.

As part of the People Count community, you can choose who to compare with on key measures, benefit from others’ good practice, and share your experiences through the Contact Zone.
