The 2016 In-House Creative Industry benchmarking survey is underway. Your input is invaluable as we benchmark the 2015 operating year for in-house creative teams.

Take the survey now.

The BOSS Group, Cella and InSource have teamed up to benchmark the in-house creative community for a fifth consecutive year. The results of this survey provide valuable insights, as well as a source of validation and direction to in-house creative leaders.

More than 450 leaders from in-house creative departments responded to our survey conducted in January 2015. These leaders represent Fortune 1000 companies, as well as middle market and other large companies, and span multiple industries including but not limited to retail, healthcare, technology and software, financial services, pharmaceuticals, higher education, consumer packaged goods and services.

In-house creative leaders were asked to share their stories as they relate to shared challenges and goals across the industry. Topics cover the evolution of a creative services team, adapting company wide performance reviews for creatives, artistically adopting a new project management system and using data analytics to measure risks and rewards.

The report covers:

  • In-house reporting structure, staff size, and staffing strategy of your peers
  • Attrition rates, volume and overtime
  • The use of time tracking technology, creative briefs, and project tracking
  • Chargeback models – pros & cons, key challengess
  • Value proposition drivers of the in-house department
  • and more
