Comparative analysis enables businesses to pinpoint areas where staffing costs may exceed industry averages or where inefficiencies exist. For Mark, it was instrumental in recognizing that his expenses for marketing, HR, and finance could be reduced without compromising the quality of work. This realization prompted him to explore innovative solutions like remote work and flexible staffing models.
4. Setting Realistic Goals
Once businesses identify areas for improvement through comparative analysis, they can set realistic goals and benchmarks to guide their cost-saving strategies. By referencing industry standards and the competition, businesses can establish targets that align with their growth objectives while ensuring financial sustainability.
