NCE100 | Benchmark your firm with a tailormade report

Benchmarking report visual 5

Gain insight and understanding into how your firm compares with the best in the industry in the NCE100 Benchmarking report

The NCE100 is, we believe, a totally independent, authoritative assessment of what it means to be an excellent civil engineering practice.

Analysis of a comprehensive company questionnaire is combined with the scoring of our judges who have scrutinised written submissions and then interviewed business leaders from the highest performing companies. This information is then combined with the views of staff themselves – obtained from a confidential survey all NCE100 companies must encourage their staff to complete.

Almost 6,500 staff completed the questionnaire this year.

Analysis of this data has yielded some fascinating statistics. For example, four out of five engineers working for NCE100 companies’ said, when asked, that their company was “great”, and that they had “no desire to work anywhere else”.

At our NCE100 Company of the Year, 96% of staff agreed with that statement. But what did yours say?

The NCE100 Benchmarking report is bespoked for your company and packed with data and analysis to help you better understand how your business compares with the best in the industry.
