The Investors in People Standard is built around the characteristics of high performing organisations and was co-created with input from industry leaders across the management community. The Standard describes a vision of productive, inclusive and sustainable workplaces that get the very best from their people. By developing, promoting and upholding good practices, our mission is to raise the standard of people management for the benefit of everyone.
We believe that organisations succeed when they realise the potential of their people. In turn, individuals perform at their best when they are led and supported well by their employer. The Standard describes the conditions to achieve this shared success for employers and employees together.
Our global community of 14,000 accredited organisations and employees collaborate, shape and set the Standard for people management. The Investors in People community is made up of a variety of organisations – from schools to multinational businesses, we work with employers of all sizes and missions. Everyone has one thing in common: they’re driven by realising the potential of every person.
Using our published methodology, we transparently and rigorously recognise achievement. This helps everyone make better decisions when looking for work.
By building standards for good leadership and people development, we help more organisations become high performing workplaces.
We connect, learn and share to help everyone improve and develop. Why not attend one of our events?
