These indices seek to increase transparency in the healthcare market and enable the analysis and tracking of changes in healthcare expenditures.

Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily.
Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents.
For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.
Performance evaluation is coming of age. Once a narrow, back office role focused solely on
crunching returns, it has become ever more integrated into the DNA of investment firms. Both
internally and externally, performance evaluation adds value, helping senior management make
key judgement calls where the difference between the right solution and the wrong solution is the
difference between growth or decline. The performance analyst of the future will provide valuable
input into nearly every area of an investment firm.
What began as a mathematical task—calculating investment returns—is morphing into something
much broader. The objective of performance evaluation today is determining what is behind the
return being analyzed. What were the key drivers—allocation or selection? What risk was taken to
achieve the return? Was it skill, or was it luck, that produced the return?

Even with the greatest level of talent on your in-house legal team, you will at some point, need the services of external counsel. When an organization rates its outside law firms, selecting just the right data might be a challenge. Business leaders may not be lawyers, so it may be necessary to rely on the self-assessment of firms to determine the “health” of their programs.
But does it need to be that subjective? Hard data is an essential tool when it comes to performance evaluation. There are specific metrics organizations can use to evaluate law firm performance. While it may not be “all about the money,” these key metrics can provide insight into how your panel handles its work and the value of the results you receive.

For the second year, we asked 500 panelists their
feelings and perceptions regarding the state of brickand-
mortar retail. The results may surprise you.
Our research found that, although sales associates are generally viewed
neutrally, specific sectors such as consumer electronics stores and momand-
pop shops have a positive perception.
Consumers seek out sales associates who are educated and able to
help them make an informed purchase. Our results also confirmed prior
reporting1 into the growing fluidity between e-commerce and traditional
retail. More than 75 percent of our panelists reported frequently browsing
online, then purchasing the product in-store. Sales associates who are
educated about the products in their store are more likely to sell more. Brands
that ensure that their sales teams have the proper product knowledge
maximize the likelihood that consumers will purchase from them.
