Benchmarking Studies

Providing Insight Through Research and Benchmark Studies

Moss Adams research services team conducts annual studies across a wide range of industries, typically under the auspices of an industry association, producing financial, operational and compensation benchmarks within industries where specific benchmarks are otherwise difficult or impossible to find.

Moss Adams has been conducting these studies annually for many years. Studies range in scope and complexity. Some studies are very finely focused, such as a use of technology or executive benefits study. Others address financial, operational and compensation measures in a very full-scale report. The associations range in size from 40 to 26,000 members, and the response rates on the studies have ranged from 20 participants to over 1,200.
