Reimagining Professional Services Post-Recession
Written by: Brian Sommer, ZDNet blogger at www.zdnet.com
If you close your eyes for a moment, can you remember what your services world looked like in late 2008 and early 2009? It was a pretty dark space. Clients abruptly halted projects or drastically cut back spending on consultants. Your firm, if typical, probably cancelled training, scaled back recruiting, froze wages, and made other moves to survive.
Today, the professional services world is changing once again in the recovering post-recession economy. But don’t make the mistake of assuming that this economy is picking up right where the economy of 2008 left off. It’s very different.
Service organizations now are seeing consultants who are more empowered and hungry to make up for lost time. The best and brightest in your firm want everything they’ve missed these last six years or so. They don’t want to just restart their stalled careers – they want to get them to a point they would have been had the recession not occurred. They want large salary increases and missed promotions. And if they don’t get them from your firm, they will, to paraphrase Dear Abby, “seek true love elsewhere.”
Increasing consultant expectations in the post-recession world will have a huge impact on professional services margins. Higher wages will lower margins. More training will reduce the number of available chargeable hours, increasing costs and cutting into billable revenue. Competitors will poach your best people to refill and expand their benches. You can expect your HR group to report more voluntary departures and rising costs and time as they work to replace lost talent. Expect signing bonuses, recruiting, advertising, and other costs to rise just to maintain the level of talent you have today.
If you don’t think that salaries are rising, a recent PSVillage Professional Services Benchmark report noted that average salaries for professional services executives rose approximately 20 percent in just the last two years. That’s significantly higher than cost of living increases in the same time period. To continue reading this article, click here.
