Hi @louise.parsons,

Our People Science team updates external benchmark data annually. You may find this People Science Explained article helpful. It also explains the reasoning behind the annual update:

“We find annual to be the right cadence for updating benchmarks given our observations on the stability of norms over time. This cadence strikes a good balance between capturing industry trends and retaining robustness.”

Kind regards,

Ellen

Hi Ellen

Yes thanks I have read that.  I was actually looking for the date that it is updated?  We have targets based on the HPN and want to know when they are likely to change.

Thanks

Hi @louise.parsons,

The benchmark review happens on a rolling schedule annually, so typically a quarter of the benchmark suites are updated every three months. Benchmarks would be updated when there are statistically significant changes over time. It isn’t a set schedule as such so we can’t share specific dates.

Kind regards,

Ellen
