People 1st delivers consultancy that enables its clients to retain staff, increase productivity and create and implement effective people strategies.

We are an impartial, trusted and effective strategic partner to our clients, working primarily across the hospitality, travel, tourism, passenger transport and retail industries.

From apprenticeship consultancy to occupational standards development, world-renowned WorldHost customer service training, ‘train the trainer’ programmes, labour market intelligence and insights and talent management support, we are passionate about transforming skills and development both internationally and across the UK’s visitor economy.
