About Vencon Research

Operating from Germany (HQ), Canada, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, Vencon Research is the largest player within the niche of consulting compensation metrics. Wehave gathered over 20 years of salary and benefits data and trends to underpin our research.

The firm began through research collaboration between UK and German businesses, which culminated in the creation of Vencon Research in 2000. The move brought together a passionate and experienced team of research analysts with strong experience in data analytics and HR professionals with multiple years of experience in the management consulting, finance, HR, and IT industries. The firm has grown to offer a broad portfolio of high-value surveys to our global clients. These are available in both standard and bespoke formats and present salary and non-cash benefits and rewards for client-facing consultants, partners as well as non-client-facing support and research staff. Vencon Research reports provide remuneration data for over 30 lines of business within the consulting, financial, legal and auditing industries. Reports cover the remuneration of partner and vice-president, consultants and support staff, as well as offer detailed and comprehensive information on compensation structures and benefits policies. We also offer a range of supporting analyses on areas such as market positioning and relevant economic trends and devaluation and inflation.
