How we work

We combine international expertise with local knowledge to deliver positive change, drawing on our experience of operating in diverse countries. We are committed to sustainable skills development, creating practical, responsive solutions to complex challenges for our clients.

Collaboration is critical to the long-term sustainability of our projects. We develop trusted partnerships that enable our experts to address the unique needs of every organisation that we work with. We actively listen to our clients and stakeholders, recognising that every situation is nuanced and often time critical, requiring a tailored approach.

Our three-phase approach acts as a comprehensive and structured guide throughout our projects, providing a solid framework for delivering successful and sustainable outcomes. This methodology serves as a blueprint for our team and enables us to effectively manage every aspect of the project detail with precision and clarity.

What sets us apart is our unique ability to offer an end-to-end solution, starting with identifying skills and workforce needs, challenges and barriers, through to designing and implementing sustainable solutions. This is further enhanced by our focus on capacity building, ensuring that the impact of our interventions extends well beyond the completion of the project.

With this approach, we provide clients with a thorough and effective solution that addresses their specific needs. Every project is different, and we treat it as such. While some projects may only go as far as the initial stage of workforce and skills needs assessment, this is often just the first step towards informing a wider investment or intervention.

“People 1st International’s conviction, experience and knowledge in upskilling and reskilling solutions aligned with job and business opportunities adds value. And the professional and human level of its team makes it very pleasant to work together.” Graciana Rucci, Lead Specialist – Labor Markets Division, Inter-American Development Bank
