Our approach for organisations

Our clients rate us 9/10
for satisfaction

We put our customers and clients first in everything we do. That’s why, twice a year we survey the organisations we work with to make sure what we offer, how we’re working and the value they’re seeing is the best it can be.

So it’s great to know that they rate us 9/10 for satisfaction and score us an overall NPS of 84.

Get a fresh perspective on the performance of your people team.

Experience assessment for teams

Support your people professionals gain CIPD accreditation

Experience Assessment is a fast-track non-study route to CIPD Associate or Chartered membership that enables people professionals to use their real-world experience to showcase how they meet the membership criteria.

It's a great way for employers to recognise the impact that people professionals within their teams are making without them having to sit an exam or study for a CIPD qualification. 

Qualifications for teams

Globally recognised qualifications

Our qualifications have been developed with our world-leading Profession Map which distils the insights of over 20,000 experts. CIPD qualifications offer the opportunity for employees in your organisation to apply and evidence practical strategies and behaviours to tackle real-life workplace challenges – and create a workplace to be proud of.
