Benchmarking question pages

A benchmarking question page displays the results of all questions asked in XpertHR benchmarking surveys.

Use benchmarking question pages to:

  • access XpertHR HR benchmarking data;
  • tailor results to generate bespoke reports on how your organisation compares;
  • deliver the data in your chosen format - including charts, tables and spreadsheet downloads - for use in your own reports, documents and presentations; and
  • share data with colleagues.

The main part of each benchmarking question page displays relevant benchmarking survey question results, as tables and charts, or as text.
