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 take part in People Count?

People Count is the annual study for the not-for-profit sector, based on these key HR topics:

  • Composition of Workforce
  • Recruitment and Selection
  • Retention
  • L&D
  • Appraisal and Performance Management
  • Absence Management
  • Employee Relations
  • The HR Function
  • Reward
  • Future Developments

Hundreds of organisations have taken part in the study, since it began in 2002. It provides you with the online tools to drill down deep into your own results, and enables you to benchmark with 7-20 organisations of your choice, as well as the whole sample. You can also benefit from others’ good practice, and share your experiences through the Contact Zone.
