This dynamic industry specific management tool will augment our ability to do so."
SIM UK Partner, Daniel Griggs, international recruitment leader, advisor and founder of Delta Genesis Consulting said, "The opportunity to Partner with SIM was an easy decision having known them for over 20 years and working with Start-ups through to Multi-national firms, I experience first-hand the importance of industry data integrity and how key insights can positively impact the ongoing success of a business. Put simply, SIM reporting shows you what you need to do more of to achieve better results.
"Being able to benchmark your business performance based on size, location and sector not only provides an internal reality check but also allows you to see the benchmark efficiencies being achieved by the top performing firms. Currently the majority of data on the system is from Australia and New Zealand but don't be fooled as there are some very close relationships seen in many of the performance indicators across all participating countries. My immediate aim is to build the participation rate in key sectors in the UK and the EU so that we can get a true picture of what's really happening in the industry"
