The Framework

Designed by Business for Business

We are the UK's most successful framework for business improvement through people management.

The Investors in People Framework underpins everything we do. Based on 20 years of leading practice, it was designed by business, for business. Written in consultation with customers, employees and people management specialists, it provides a path to organisational change.

Created to meet the ever-evolving needs and challenges of today's businesses, the Framework gives you a tangible way to drive your business forward. The benchmark for any well-run organisation, it signals to customers and employees your commitment to good business and people management excellence.


An eye on the future

While much of our work goes on behind the scenes in business, you'll often find us at the forefront of national debate. We help shape government policy, judge awards and carry out ground-breaking research. By sharing our ideas and insights, we deepen our understanding of the needs of today's businesses and pave the way for their future success.
