Staffing Industry Benchmarking Consortium
The Staffing Industry Benchmarking Consortium (SIBC) is managed by Staffing Industry Analysts, and consists of a group of staffing companies -- large and small, privately-held and publicly-traded -- who confidentially provide Staffing Industry Analysts with their company's financial and operating data so that they, in turn can access aggregated benchmarking data. It is specifically designed for staffing firm CEOs, owners, CFOs, board members, and other senior executives who want an ongoing, timely scorecard on how their specific company's financial and business performance compares to similar staffing companies.

The SIBC survey is implemented twice a year. Participation is open to corporate members only, at no additional charge. Please contact if you would like more information about SIBC.

The current round of SIBC is now closed. If you are a corporate member and would like to participate in the future, or would like to become a corporate member, please contact
