National Governing Bodies Benchmarking Survey Report 2019

17th February 2020

We are delighted to present haysmacintyre’s fifth annual National Governing Bodies benchmarking report.

Based on detailed responses from 24 organisations across the sector, our survey offers detailed management information against which NGBs can benchmark themselves, that reveals trends both in financial performance and governance, and highlights what the sector perceives to be key threats for the future. 

The report covers key areas of income, expenditure, governance and risks. This year we have introduced a change in methodology over the expenditure section to provide more detailed benchmarking. In addition, we have looked at new areas from commercial partnerships to flexible working arrangements. 

As ever, we hope you will find our report a useful resource for your management teams. Our sample spans very large NGBs with significant budgets, through to smaller organisations, a point worth bearing in mind when comparing your own data to our averages. Looking ahead, if you would like to suggest topics for us to examine in our 2020 report, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

If you would like to discuss any of the points raised in this edition please do not hesitate to get in touch with your usual haysmacintyre contact or Tom Wilson, Partner.
