We provide high-value insight into family friendly working practices in specific industries, through our multi-industry survey of staff retention strategies.

Family Friendly Working Policies

The insight inherent in our research allows professional services firms to achieve measurable success in the recruitment of high-performing female talent at all levels. In many cases, professional services firms are successful in recruiting top female talent for entry level positions but may struggle to do so at more senior levels within the organisation. Female partners are routinely under-represented at 10 per cent or less.

THE REPORT

The Vencon Research Family Friendly Working Policies report provides you with a full analysis and comparison of competitor best and standard practices, with insight into legal/statutory obligations. Findings are drawn from over 200 survey participants and over 30 measurement parameters are included. The report constitutes rich and actionable data upon which to base appropriate hiring and retention strategies.

In addition to consultancies, we also service a range of professional firms including investment banks, law firms and global corporations, ensuring that we capture the full scope and breadth of best practice in family friendly working.

The survey assesses employer initiatives with regard to pregnancy, parental leave and re-integration into work. For each, it considers the success and practicality of different approaches taken by the research groups, including flexible hours, role transfer, parental pay, fringe benefits, childcare assistance and part-time working.

Each country report is usable as a stand-alone survey of current practices, but the overall study allows for evaluation at an international level. Because the report is comprehensive in scope and contains rich and detailed data, we also include a consolidated Executive Summary. This defines the key findings and presents them in a clear and concise manner, with details of practices across every benefit category and a quantified evaluation of legal through to voluntary benefits.

As with all Vencon Research products, our Family Friendly Working Policies report is presented in a format that facilitates onward briefing. It includes both raw data and a range of graphs and visual presentations, for maximum utility. We can also provide additional analysis and reports, including bespoke reporting. Our clients benefit from volume discounts where suites of reports are purchased.

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.
