At Sousou Partners, we believe in having a point of view. For over twenty years, it is what our clients have come to expect and to value. Having a point of view about their talent needs, compensation structures, and recruitment processes – but also the type of businesses they are seeking to build and the cultures they are nurturing.

Our annual compensation review has become the centerpiece of our insight work. Each year we benchmark compensation trends across a number of job roles, geographies, and sectors and make this work – suitably anonymized and confidential – available to clients and the media. We also look beyond the immediate world of recruitment. We regularly scan the operating landscape to identify emerging topics and trends that have the potential to affect our clients or the overall real asset sector. And then we research, reflect and review to bring a deeper understanding to our work.

Sometimes we simply write about what has moved us and what we believe is important.
