Our Story

We founded People Collective in 2018 having scaled companies like Qubit, Lyst, and Peakon.

The idea behind it was twofold: 1. We wanted to see companies become successful 2. We knew that they would become successful by getting the people work and organisational development done right. Designing your organisation to scale, instead of leaving it to chance.

We started by working with very early stage startups, proving our hypothesis and watching our clients go on to raise further capital, reach profitability, have private exits, and also IPO.

Since then we've worked with many startups, scale-ups and category leaders to solve their people challenges. We're incredibly proud of the team we have built, the impact of their work for our clients, and their unwavering approach to constantly developing and improving those outcomes.

Nothing makes us happier than seeing the feedback from our clients.

How likely are you to recommend us to another company? 4.6/5

The value add to my business was worth the investment? 4.7/5

Read what they say about our work:

Trusted by startups, scaleups and category leaders

Since 2018, we’ve helped 150+ startups, scale-ups, and category leaders shape powerful people experiences that help them and their teams to perform at their best.

The People Collective felt like they were part of our team, making everything run smoothly with their collaborative approach.

We initially signed up for two critical projects: levelling & progression and performance development. After seeing the fantastic results, it was a no-brainer to add a third project focused on salary benchmarking and compensation philosophy.

Their HR expertise is top-notch. Instead of one-size-fits-all solutions, they tailored their strategies to our specific needs, delivering outstanding results.

We are seeing great impact from the projects. We've created more structure, visibility & opportunities for growth for our people, our performance management became more effective and engaging, and scalable.
