Who We Are

What We Do

We are here to help every individual and every team be the very best they can be because we believe that good people make a great business.

The We Invest in People standard is a guide for transforming your culture to one where people love to be.

Gerry and Janet meet, and the idea of Investors in People Philippines was born.

Gerry became a licensed Investors in People Philippines Quality Manager.

The Investors in People Philippines operates in partnership with People Management Association of the Philippines.

On July 25, 2011 Investors in People Philippines became an independent company, registered under the Security and Exchange Commission as Inspiring Partners Inc.

In September 2011 the Inspiring Partners Inc., team moves into their new space, the 15th floor of the Commerce and Industry Plaza at McKinley Hill.


Our Vision is for our accredited organizations to be seen as role models of good practice in leading and managing people.


Our mission is to help organizations put their people and purpose first.


Learn every day. Be crazy about quality. Be real. Care for Each Other
