Pavilion Pulse Benchmarking Survey — September 2022

Results from our September Pulse survey were mixed, with 60% reporting higher new revenue than last month, but also a higher percentage of layoffs. In fact, we found that August was the biggest month for layoffs in 2022 and 15% of respondents anticipate going through layoffs in the next 6 months.

Despite this, 36% of respondents reported they are likely to hit their original 2022 revenue targets (54% reported revising targets for 2022). So, what are those who are hitting their original numbers doing differently? We found:

  • They were more likely to be focused on selling to Enterprise orgs
  • They were less likely to have stopped or paused hiring
  • They were less likely to have decreased spending on tools and technology
  • They were more likely to have increased marketing spend YoY
  • They are not planning on decreasing marketing spend through the remainder of 2022
