A new Framework. A new high Standard.

Have you noticed how some organisations do better by every measure? We asked what the very best organisations - the Outperformers - do to stay ahead. The differentiating factor was their approach to people. We then built the sixth generation of the Investors in People Management Standard around them. In 2015 the very first organisations will be accredited against the new Framework. A new high Standard.

Based on 25 years of leading practice, the sixth generation reflects the very latest workplace trends, to help every organisation be the best they can be. The Framework sets out the criteria which must be met to achieve Investors in People Accreditation.
