HRO Todayâs Bakerâs Dozen rankings are based solely on feedback from buyers of the rated services; the ratings are not based on the opinion of the HRO Today Global staff. We collect feedback annually through an online survey, which we distribute both directly to buyers through our own mailing lists and indirectly by sending service providers the link to send to their clients.
Once collected, response data are loaded into the HRO Today database for analysis to score each provider that has a statistically significant sample. For this survey, we required 10 responses from eight companies. We reached out to more than 35 providers of relocation services.
In order to determine an overall ranking, we analyse results across three subcategories: features breadth, deal sizes, and quality. Using a predetermined algorithm that weighs questions and categories based on importance, we calculate scores in all three subcategories, as well as an overall score. The rankings are based on those scores. The numbers presented in the tables represent those calculated scores; we include them to demonstrate the relative differences among the ranked service providers.
Whilst we do not claim that our methodology is the only viable ratings programme available, we do vouch for its statistical validity. We hope this ranking provides you some insight into your next RFP process.
