About Performance in People Ltd

Performance in People (PIP) are the UK’s leading customer service business, providing customer-experience consultancy and measurement services to improve customer service throughout the UK.

Since PIP’s formation in 2000 by MD Mike Dalloz, the company has enjoyed exponential growth and now has over 80 head office staff and more than 35,000 mystery shoppers and assessors.

PIP’s main business objective is to create sustainable improvements in clients' customer service and sales performance. The firm has gained a reputation as the UK's largest video mystery-shopping provider and represents many UK and global brands across a range of sectors including retail, automotive, financial services, leisure and public services.

The SMT has reflected these values with, among other things, an increased entertainment budget, sharing news with all staff at monthly meetings, and establishing a return on investment for each request.

What is it like to work for Performance in People Ltd

Senior managers are always looking to improve their own visibility and accessibility, and to make themselves available to staff when they are needed. They have instigated and engaged with staff suggestions and improvements, such as a new Christmas shutdown period that provides all staff with extra time off.
Free fruit is provided to office-based staff, as well as flu jabs in winter and yoga sessions every fortnight. The company is also investing in the training of mental health first aiders to ensure everyone is aware of their own mental health needs, and feels able to speak up if they need help.
