Benchmarking: How does your employee benefits plan stack up to the competition?

25/01/2024 | Employee Benefits

Benchmarking is the practice of comparing a company’s business processes, performance metrics, or offerings to those of other businesses, especially the best practices from industry leaders or direct competitors. In the context of Employee Benefits and Group Savings, benchmarking involves analyzing the benefits and savings plans that your organization offers against what other companies in your industry or sector are providing.

Why is Benchmarking important?

It is a common misconception that all benefits and group savings plans are built the same, this is just plainly not true. There are hundreds of variables, and it can be difficult to know where to start.

Advantages of Benchmarking:

  • Competitive Edge: Understanding what others in the industry are offering helps you ensure that your benefits and savings packages remain competitive, attracting and retaining top talent.


  • Identifying Gaps: Highlight areas where your offerings might be lacking in comparison to industry standards. This insight allows for strategic adjustments to improve employee satisfaction and retention.


  • Cost Efficiency: By comparing your plans with those of competitors, you can identify opportunities for better negotiation with vendors or find more cost-effective solutions without compromising on the value delivered to employees.


  • Informed Decision Making: Having a clear picture of industry standards supports better decision-making processes regarding benefits and savings, helping allocate resources more effectively.
