The Benefits of Internal BenchmarkingMay 17, 2019
Utilizing benchmarking is common among a variety of companies and industries. It is an excellent opportunity to establish baselines in your company, help to define the best practices, determine where you can improve internally, and help inspire some competition within your company. This can also be used to help you evaluate and prioritize the areas your company needs to work on.
Benchmarking can provide you with the opportunity to:
- Identify gaps in your performance and determine which areas can be improved. This can come down to the quality of work being produced, the availability of your staff, and their efficiency.
- Develop a standard set of processes. Benchmarking helps you determine your metrics and cost, allowing you to alter how you do things and standardize your entire process.
- Create a transparent culture and encourage continuous improvement. Provide the metrics for all levels of your company up to the president so that individuals can understand how they impact different areas of the business. Also, show them their current performance levels and compare that to industry standards to help increase their productivity and exceed the averages.
- Set performance expectations. By comparing the benchmarking of other companies in your industry, you can determine where you should be as well and set some performance expectations for your employees.
- Monitor your company’s performance. Performing benchmarking regularly can help you see where your company stands over time. This will let you know if you are improving on goals you have created or if there is still work to be done.
