We invest in people:
One-year accreditation

| For organisations of less than 50 people |

Your people are your most valuable commodity; they are the driving force behind it all and are critical to any organisation’s success. For these reasons, investing in your people is vital. 

Investing in your people is proven to be essential in delivering sustainable results, especially in a crisis. Organisations that lead, support and develop their workforce effectively are 17% more productive and 21% more profitable. 

Employers who get this wrong not only suffer the performance consequences but also see a detrimental impact on the wellbeing of their employees. 

If you are a smaller organisation trying to navigate your way through the current economic challenges and can’t afford to spend a lot of time and money evaluating your management processes, we have created our We invest in people: One-year accreditation with you in mind. 


The accreditation is suitable for organisations with less than 50 people. It offers you an in-depth analysis of your organisation at a significantly reduced cost, compared to our full, three-year, We invest in people accreditation.  

What are the benefits?

What we assess | Framework

How we assess you

1 | People Framework

We use our framework to assess how well you are supporting your people at work, including leading, supporting and improving. 

We’ve been developing our approach and this framework for nearly 30 years. 

2 | Assessment

An assessment might sound daunting, but it isn’t. It’s a chance for our practitioner to get to know your company, your leaders and your people.  

We will review all the evidence you can provide us with and then we will talk to your people and the people who have created your people strategy. 

3 | Your Report

At the end of the assessment, we’ll take all of our findings and turn them into a report which sums up and provides recommendations to help you improve.  

You’ll also find out if you managed to obtain the accreditation or if you’re not quite there yet. 

4 | Making Improvements

Becoming accredited is an achievement to celebrate! But it’s not the end of the journey. Your accreditation lasts for one year, and we’ll help you to understand what you need to do to keep the momentum going and obtain it again.
