Feedback from our staff about our company leaders

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

"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."

"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."

This is literally the proudest moment in my career! We worked so hard as an organisation to meet the very high standards and criteria. The team have been amazing and have been completely invested in making the business the best that it can be. The 21st March 2022 is a milestone for Datasource. 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


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


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


"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."


"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."


"Arlo the company dog comes in most days which is great, we go out for lunch, we have brownies in the office, certificates for everyone to show appreciation and clapping in team meetings, it's great."

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…

How are we doing that?


We're a community interest company, which means we put our purpose before our profits. That means everything we do and every direction we take is done to make work better.


Organisations that meet the we invest in our people framework are proud to display their accreditation to the world.


Because they understand that it's people that make work better.
