- In the services industry, financial metrics -- like the ratio of revenue to FTEs -- are important markers of your company's overall health.
- And in any industry, one of the best ways to improve your business is to compare your performance to that of your peers.
- The chart below shows services industry benchmarks for key KPIs so you can compare your business’s financial prowess to others.
Ever wonder how many FTEs your fellow services companies require to manage their financials and IT? Analyzing their FTEs can be hugely helpful in refining your own hiring and management practices, making you more efficient overall.
