About Investors
in People

Most of us will spend around 80,000 hours at work in our lifetimes.

For something that takes up that much of our time, we think people deserve to get more out of it than just a regular pay cheque.

Thats why we’ve already helped more than 11 million people across 75 countries to make work better. And you know what, we’re just getting started…

This is literally the proudest moment in my career! We worked so hard as an organisation to meet the very high standards and criteria.

Thank you to Jenny Goward our IIP Assessor who conducted the assessment virtually while suffering with COVID-19. We can't thank you enough for persevering for us!

Comments from
our staff

Throughout the process our team were asked for their views on Datasource as a company and the management team to help in the assessment. All of these comments were given confidentially.

"Lindsay lives and breathes Datasource which personally I find very inspirational. She is very supportive and I can ask her anything."

"We have annual targets that are broken down into monthly targets which is helpful"

"Stu is a very hands on MD, is always on the daily call and will check what everyone is up to. He is very supportive."

"We meet weekly as a team and 1:1s every other day as new starters even if it's just a quick 5 minutes. There is a constant follow up and they are being gentle with me regarding targets as I'm still in training."

"Lauren is great, she is in the office with us every day and is very hands on. It really feels like they value all their employess."

"There is a clear structure of Bronze, Silver and Gold and you know what you need to achieve to go to the next level."

"Every day they show appreciation, I have never worked in a company that has so much and it keeps you motivated and you feel valued."
