Provide benchmarking in hourly rates as well as standard business reimbursement expenses for contract consultants in the professional training & development, team building, and management consulting industry.
Looking for industry average rates per hour for:
Senior/ executive level facilitators
Industry would be: strategic meeting facilitators, trainers, team building facilitators, management consulting in the area of people and organizational development.
Note: pay for delivering work that has already been sold -- the work handed to them vs. having to search & sell the work and then deliver it.
Only benchmark consultants with college education (mid-top level education), at least 8 years experience -- comfortable working with fortune 500 level clients
In addition, what are typical costs paid for by the firm hiring the contractor (e.g. % of cell phone, travel - for internal meetings, not travel as paid by the client for delivering the project, office expenses -- printing/ ink, email address/ hosting, etc).
Success for me is: Understanding going hourly market rates for contractors and typical expense reimbursements to make sure i'm paying my team better than industry average rates ...as well as to justify why i pay what i pay ...but also not over reimburse or pay (outside of the top end of the benchmarking scale).
I want to understand where you got the data so i can be sure i'm comparing apples to apples ...not oranges in the quality of contractors as well as industry.
First priority is the USA. Second would be South Africa and/or Europe if you feel like you can provide quality data.
