The Return on Investors

Hillage J, Moralee J | Report 314 | Institute for Employment Studies | Sep 1996

Investors in People is the national standard for training and development and forms a major element of the Government's policy to raise the skills of the nation's workforce.

In 1993 the Institute for Employment Studies was commissioned by the then Employment Department to evaluate the initiative. This report presents the key findings from three annual studies based on comparisons of employers involved and not involved in Investors.

It looks at why employers get involved with Investors, the issues surrounding meeting the standard, the effect on employer training and management practice and the impact on business performance.
