About Staffing Industry Metrics

Staffing Industry Metrics is a business intelligence platform created exclusively for staffing and recruitment agencies.

Formerly RIBreport (est. 2003), SIM is the cloud based evolution of this highly regarded benchmark and peer comparison reporting service. Praised as the "most exciting innovation the staffing and recruitment industry has seen in a long time", this world-class data dashboard is relevant, affordable and accessible to recruitment agencies of every size and in any location.


To build a great business you need to KNOW what great actually looks like in today's market. In business it's easy and common to under or over estimate your performance. Thinking you're good when you're average is fatal, thinking you're average when you're good can lead to burn out along with missed opportunities to enjoy or celebrate your hard earned success.

Benchmarking your performance ensures you know where you stand and what lies ahead if you are to achieve greatness. Thinking you're good is one thing, knowing you're good is another, it's exhilarating!

That's the reason we created this simple-to-use, world-first online interactive platform that brings measuring performance, growth and financial management for recruitment agencies alive.


Tracking your financial performance alongside the aggregated data provides a clear comparison of current market trends, performance and efficiencies.

If you love a challenge, want to know how good you are and how to be even better, we can help. If you want consistent data reporting across all levels and locations of your organisation, SIM delivers that too.

Already, recruitment agencies in 15 countries use our dynamic reports to better understand:

  • Internal and external trends;
  • Sales;
  • Gross profit (Net Fee Income);
  • Perm, Temp and Contract business;
  • Cost control;
  • Productivity including productivity cost efficiencies; and
  • Profitability.

It takes 10-minutes a month to input and upload your data with instant access to your reports and selected peer group comparisons at any time.

Traditionally, collecting and managing performance data was a tedious, manual task.

Now, with a simple to use, cloud-based platform you can streamline your business data. And then provide fresh, comprehensive, unbiased insights into the metrics and trends that matter most to you.

From any internet connected device, at any time, you can access more than 50 instant reports including performance trends for your chosen peer group benchmark comparisons.

Absolute ANONYMITY of your data is guaranteed. Members can't see the results of other recruitment agencies but use data mining filters to drill down into aggregated benchmarks for team size, number of locations and key sectors.

Unlimited users can access their personal dashboards at any time, meaning staff from branches, both local and international can simultaneously see real-time results and view the reports most relevant to them. Instant currency conversion and the ability to add report comments complete the truly global experience.
