What business intelligence services does Acre offer?

Safety & Sustainability Salary Benchmarking

If you’re looking to remain fair and competitive with your organization’s compensation structures, we can provide you with up-to-date insights about what the rest of the industry is offering. We will leverage our current and historic data to provide you with objective information from over 80,000 safety and sustainability data points. Then, our experienced business intelligence consultants will sense check and verify our benchmarking figures through proactive engagement with the market.

In addition to our bespoke, confidential salary benchmarking support services, we also conduct and share the industry’s largest CR & Sustainability Salary Survey on a bi-annual basis. You can read our 2020 CR&S Salary Survey in GBP, EUR or USD here.

Market Mapping

We perform comprehensive market mapping exercises to uncover and illustrate the broad, diverse talent pool that is relevant to your search, and provide recommendations on specific individuals and companies to engage.

Approaching individuals both as potential candidates and as sources of referrals, this process establishes invaluable benchmarking information and competitor information, such as average salary levels, job design, organizational/team structures, compensation packages and more.

M&A Advisory Services

We offer M&A advisory services, allowing clients to leverage our well-established industry relationships to facilitate a significantly more efficient service than those typically supplied by corporate finance firms. Combining these relationships with our comprehensive database allows for potential M&A targets to be identified across the entire sustainability market.

Competitor Analysis

We help our clients understand their position in the current marketplace, assessing competitor strengths, weaknesses and strategies. In doing so, we provide a strategic context for the identification of risks and opportunities for growth and development.

Job Design

When looking to address the change needed in a team, a business function or in an entire organization, it is imperative that the roles and responsibilities underpinning each are fit for purpose. We leverage our competency-based recruitment service to determine what ‘good’ looks like and to ensure that jobs are well-positioned to attract the right people for the right reasons.

Structural Recommendations

As organizations look to lead with purpose, we can support with competitor analysis and data-driven insight into the optimal structure required to build purpose-driven agendas into the bottom line of a business.
