Benchmarking is about comparing your co‑op’s performance against others in order to identify opportunities for improvement. Seeing your results set against those of your peers will inspire the insights and ideas for your co‑op to get better financial results.

Here’s how it works:

  • Define a peer group that makes sense to you and test how well your co‑op has been doing in looking after its finances and its property.
  • Analyze your performance. If it’s scoring low, explore the reasons why. If it is scoring high, share your good practices with us!
