UK 200: Business Services – 2017

The UK 200: Business Services is the most detailed statistical analysis of UK 200 firms’ business services personnel and strategies. It forms part of the UK 200 series, the only report on all 200 of the 200 largest firms ranked by revenue in the UK.

It includes a wealth of metrics, directly attributed to firms, which enable firms to compare their number of a variety of business services staff with their peers. The report contains metrics on eight types of business services staff: facilities, finance, HR, know how (including library), marketing/PR/BD, secretarial/document production, technology and risk/compliance.

This report is a key resource for firms seeking to understand whether they are over or under resourced in specific business service areas.

But this report is not just about the numbers. It includes a wealth of case studies and insight from firms on their business service strategies, including outsourcing, north-shoring and, importantly how technology is being used to streamline business service provision.
