LTA Policy Benchmarking Tool

A reminder for those members that may have missed the announcement the RES Forum’s New LTA Policy Benchmarking Tool is now live! Click here to link through to the Analytics Landing page and then click on the LTA benchmarking icon (first left). You will need to be logged in to use it. There is a short user guide click here to help you navigate through the process. This is an exciting new tool for members and we are also working on three other analytics modules which will be launched in the coming months. More than 90 of our member organisations have already logged on, answered the benchmarking questions and benchmarked their organisations. Initial feedback is that it is really simple to use with results presented in a clear graphical format. Results are also downloadable so you can extract to share or compare and contrast as often as you liketo see the effect of policy changes you make internally within your organisation. If you have not already tried it out it is well worth 10 minutes of you time!
