What is IIP accreditation?

IIP accreditation means we are constantly moving and constantly improving. IIP provide a framework to ensure our business continues to expand, aiding the personal and professional growth of representatives at all levels. This is done through clear benchmarking, route-planning and development milestones.

What does this mean for us?

Better leaders

We are able to develop better leaders at every level of the organisation. We are able to ensure that all people-managers are able to fully support their teams.

Feedback we can measure

We’re able to use the IIP framework to measure how effectively our staff are working. Not only will this highlight when they’re going above and beyond, it also ensures that we are able to easily recognise grounds for improvement.

Efficient Structures

With the right structure brings comfort. IIP helps us to create and maintain the most effective business structure. This allows us to future-proof our business and ensure sustainable success.

Continuous Improvement

Our IIP accreditation will help us embrace change. This allows us to exponentially improve with a clear road map for success.

Dedicated Experts

As part of our support package from the IIP, we will have access to a dedicated, highly experienced business management practitioner.


We will have full access to datasets surrounding our business. This means we’re able to compare our own statistics with our industry peers and secure boardroom buy-ins by bringing data to the table.



We’re extremely excited to have the support of Investors in People. Their hard work combined with our industry-leading services should ensure that AFS retains its level of excellency well into the future.
