All our work is focused on employment-related areas and our output draws on many years of experience in this field. The first IDS service, IDS Pay Report, was launched in 1966 with a very simple aim: to provide accurate information for practical use by anyone involved in determining pay, benefits and related policies. Since then more information services have been launched by IDS, including Employment Law Brief, Executive Compensation Review, and HR in Practice.

Unique in its field, IDS is staffed with teams of researchers, writers and employment lawyers who provide informed research, insight and analysis across our range of products and services. Today IDS publishes subscription services and a wide range of publications across the employment field. We also run conferences and training courses, and offer bespoke research.
