ACE Benchmarking 2012
ACE Benchmarking is the industry’s annual peer to peer survey and report, providing participating businesses with an in-depth analysis of the operations, revenue per fee earner, costs, staff turnover, marketing activity and competitiveness.
The ACE Benchmarking programme has been designed for companies with a headcount of more than 50, and is designed to provide a comprehensive set on metrics to analyses all aspects of a company’s performance. Currently it provides approximately 550 metrics covering a wide variety of business operations.
If your company has a headcount of 50 or fewer and would like to participate in benchmarking, ACE has developed the Benchmarking Lite programme
ACE Benchmarking covers both the UK and Europe, to enhance the comparative indicators available to companies. International comparisons are important given increasing international competition.
ACE Benchmarking is a key tool for facilitating this industry debate, and so is run in conjunction with the European CEO Conference to pool the knowledge of key influential people within the construction and consultancy sector.
