Vencon Research is the leading specialist provider of compensation metrics and reporting to the global consulting industry.

Administration & Support Staff Survey

Vencon Research is the leading specialist provider of compensation metrics and reporting to the global consulting industry. Our clients range from the world’s largest management consultancies, through to in-country boutique agencies specialising in IT, strategy, management and finance consulting. We provide a range of specialist reports to aid industry decision makers in devising compensation strategies to attract and retain the best talent.

In addition to reports detailing the consulting industry’s compensation practices for consultants and partners, we offer valuable insight into the cash compensation offered to non-billable staff within your industry. Our Administration and Support Staff survey recognises that business performance is predicated on the output of the entire staff base, extending far beyond consulting professionals. A leading consultancy will wish to attract and retain the very best talent in the fields of business administration and professional support.

For this reason, decision makers need to be able to establish compensation practices at equivalent firms, rather than attempt to extrapolate standard and best practices from within general industry data sets. Vencon Research’s Administration and Support Staff Survey offers comprehensive benchmarking data on total and base cash compensation for over 70 discrete administration and support roles across more than 12 functional areas. These range from entry-level administrators and receptionists, through to management roles in corporate support functions. The scope of our survey extends to roles that are specific to management consulting as an industry, including research professionals, graphic designers and recruiters.

Our Approach

Analytic

In addition to all the usual compensation data analyses of overall means, percentiles and ranges, Vencon Research reports include a full raw data set, enabling clients to further analyse the data in the manner best suited to their requirements. The data tables, graphics and executive summary are comprehensive and regularly revised in response to client needs.

Comprehensive

Our reports cover more than 70 countries worldwide and provide actionable data for both mature and emerging consulting markets. Vencon Research works with more than 300 leading firms, ranging from independent strategy boutiques to the largest global firms. Our reports represent nearly 400,000 consultants and support staff ranging from junior reception staff to senior partners.

Cost Effective

Vencon Research is exclusively a remuneration data provider to the professional services industries; our research and production capabilities are designed for optimal delivery of these data. Clients can purchase a full report tailored to their line of business for less than a typical BA sign-on bonus. With a progressive discount structure, firms may purchase a dozen country reports for the cost equivalent of a single MBA sign-on bonus.

Current

Within Vencon Research, data collection and validation is a continuous process. This enables us to produce salary and benefits reports at several points throughout the year containing the very latest information. ‘Snapshot’ data can be provided in new or rapidly developing markets where scheduled release dates are insufficient.

Confidential

As their primary asset, management consulting firms are necessarily discreet about their professional staff. By observing the highest standards of data confidentiality, including commitment to any confidentiality agreement deemed appropriate by the client, Vencon Research has been able to establish its position of trust with the leading firms. Participant identity is divulged only to other participating firms and anonymity of individual data lines is paramount.

Professional

Our clients are the elite of the global management consulting industry and operate to the highest standards in the quality of their research, reports and presentations.  By setting the same high standards for ourselves, we enable clients to use our reports, graphics and tables in their original form when disseminating or presenting the information.

Primary Sourced

The principal sources of data are the HR directors and partners of the participant firms. All data are cross-validated against previous data sets to ensure consistency and accurate comparison in the data as presented.

Relevant

Vencon Research's report data are sourced from the HR Directors and responsible Partners of the participating firms. Our generic reports can also be tailored to meet specific client needs, for example mapping their own data line against only upper-quartile competitors.
