Investors in People is the Standard for people management. The international people management Standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. With a community of 14,000 organisations across 75 countries, successful accreditation against the Standard is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to sustained success. Based on a tried and tested framework and a rigorous process of assessment, organisations that meet the Investors in People Standard proudly display their accreditation to the world because they understand that it’s people that make the difference. Since 1991, the standard has evolved to keep pace with modern practices. The current sixth generation was launched internationally in 2015.
