For the past five years, The BOSS Group, Cella Consulting and InSource have teamed up to benchmark the in-house creative community. The In-House Creative Services Industry Report documents responses from more than 400 in-house leaders representing Fortune 1000 companies across several business categories.

They will share what's new, what's trending — and what all in-house managers and staffers need to know now.
