We have worked extensively with and for all the major international data providers. We have deep knowledge of their systems, tools and data. Regardless of which data provider you use, we know how to make their systems work for your needs. 

We not only help you set up benchmarking principles and processes, we also help you communicate. A large part of benchmarking is getting you managers to trust and use your principles and data, – and we know what works. You should not underestimate the communication around benchmarking principles.

HRIS systems are a great support to most rewards process when set up correctly. We can advise you how to set up the system to fit your processes. But a large part of reward processes will always be outside any HR system. It entails approval processes, training material, governance etc. We can help you spot where improvement is needed, what is working for your stakeholders and what is not.
