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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
