The Investors in People  (IIP) standard is a practical framework that any business can use to help ensure its people management, planning and communication processes are working together to achieve its goals and targets. IIP was launched by the Government in 1991 to help raise the productivity of businesses in the UK. Having undergone a number of revisions, we are now on version 6 – which has a clear focus on high performing organisations and reflecting on the latest workplace and leadership development.

As a registered and quality assured Practitioner, skillslocal offers advice and guidance to help businesses and organisations work towards, achieve and maintain the Investors in People standard.

Currently, skillslocal is a registered IIP practitioner working for the Investors in People CIC.

Why It’s Good For Your Company

  • Provides a national benchmark against others in your sector and other IIP organisations
  • Supports recruitment and retention; particularly in sectors where there are skills gaps/challenges
  • Provides the organisation with a continuous improvement plan which is reviewed annually
  • Provides confidence to clients, partners and suppliers that the company is a good employer endorsed by the national people Standard
  • Compliments other standards such as ISO, as it measures the outcomes of your policies and procedures and the impact these have on your people
  • Some tenders will look more favourably at organisations who have the IIP standard as this shows there are clear and consistent workforce practices and generally a happier more motivated workforce

Why It’s Good For Your Employees

  • The standard incorporates feedback from all employees (via an online assessment) so provides a benchmark for employee engagement

  • Helps ensure workforce practices are consistent across the organisation

  • Provides confidence to clients, partners and suppliers that the company is a good employer endorsed by the national people Standard

  • The Health and Wellbeing Good Practice Award offers focus and stretch beyond the Investors in People standard.
