Everest Group Methodology
Based on its evaluation framework PEAK Matrix, Everest Group selects Star Performers based on year-on-year improvement in market success and delivery capability. Only those organizations that are top quartile performers on each parameter are identified as "Star Performers." To assess market success advancements, Everest Group evaluates the increase in the number of RPO clients, growth in recent successes, and the increase in the number of hires being managed. Delivery capability is determined by reviewing annual growth in scale, increased scope of services, expansion of delivery footprint, and investments in technology enhancements, among other factors.
