All companies who access WIT are allowed to have at least one stretch benchmark, even if they have only gone for the Basic Data package.
Stretch Benchmarks are assigned to the company automatically when a new WIT account is created for that particular company survey. However, there may be occasions when no stretch benchmarks are assigned despite having done this.
The most likely cause of this would be if the stretch benchmark was inactive. A benchmark is inactive if there are not enough companies making up that benchmark.
A company cannot be assigned an inactive benchmark, and the system is not able to automatically assign an alternative benchmark, so in situations like this, an alternative benchmark will have to be assigned manually using
Back Office -> WIT -> Rights Assignment.
