How It Works

We use our We invest in people framework to understand how you lead, support and develop your people at work.

Making work better has been our purpose for more than 30 years, helping over 50,000 organisations and 11 million people across the globe.

Your Assessment

An assessment might sound daunting, but it isn’t. It’s a chance for you to understand your organisation from an unbiased and independent assessment of your people strategy, practices and outcomes. 

Everybody in your organisation will have a chance to share their thoughts, feelings and opinions.

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 what level you’ve achieved: Standard, Silver, Gold or Platinum.

Making Improvements

Becoming accredited is an achievement to celebrate! But it’s not the end of the journey. Your accreditation lasts for three years, and we’ll help you create an action plan for what changes your company is going to make over that time. Your practitioner will check in with you at 12 and 24 months to see how you’re getting on.

Happy Teams
