About Us


We believe in Investing in People

Founded 1991

A Community Interest Company, we lead the drive for better leadership and better workplaces. Having started out as a UK Government project, we are now an independent, not-for-profit company that helps thousands of organisations to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results.

Inspired People

Our dynamic team and talented external partners support a wide range of organisations. Drawing on diverse skills and expertise, we help them engage more effectively with employees and develop a culture that can align and deliver their objectives.

Global Impact

We work with organisations across the world who listen to and develop their employees to help them achieve their true potential. This international recognition helps companies to attract and retain vital talent.

Vibrant Community

When you join us, you join an exciting and innovative community – organisations of every size that understand the dynamics of good people management and transformational leadership. Sharing ideas and learning from each other’s achievements is key to continuous improvement.

It’s about creating thriving workplaces, where a combination of leadership excellence
and the opportunity to fulfil your potential, delivers the best possible outcomes for everyone.

The organisations clearly outperforming others, are the ones with smarter goals.
They understand that investing in people is vital to their success.

Paul Devoy | CEO
