The professional services benchmark is made up of companies that provide vital services in our modern economies. The work is increasingly a combination of experience and even technology - relying often on specialist industry knowledge and expertise.
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.
