The Europe benchmark represents people who work in Europe. It covers all industries and functions. The benchmark includes people who work in Europe but their organizations have headquarters in other countries. This benchmark only includes organizations of size 0–100 employees.
We consider this an emerging benchmark: it has enough data available for us to use bootstrapping to create a representative sample. As the sample grows in size, some scores may slightly change. Our research has shown that our bootstrapped scores are consistent with our standard benchmarks. Read more about the methodology.
