Chartered Institute Of Personnel and Development (CIPD)

Introduction

We're the professional body for HR and people development - experts on the world of work and career partner to over 140,000 members around the world. Our purpose is to champion better work and working lives by improving practices in people and organisation development, for the benefit of individuals, businesses, economies and society.

We believe that as well as creating value for organisations and economies, work can and should benefit individuals and society at large too. Work must do more than meet our basic financial needs - it should give us meaning and purpose, and contribute to our overall well-being.

Our purpose

As a registered Charity, we were established to promote the art and science of the management and development of people for public benefit. We’re committed not only to finding and championing ways of defining and organising work that create economic and societal value, but also to promoting ways of improving individual working lives.

The HR and L&D professions hold the key to unlocking that sweet spot. Good people management and development are not only good for the financial performance of a given business, but also for the well-being of its workforce and for the long-term prosperity of the economies and societies in which we all work.

Our vision

We believe that by growing and developing a community of professionals that champion better work and working lives, we'll help ensure that work creates value for individuals, organisations, economies and society.

Our vision is to define and represent the international benchmark for excellence in people and organisation management and development.

We'll do this by:

  • using our voice to influence relevant stakeholders and encourage them to invest in the HR profession, as well as other capabilities that help to champion better work and working lives
  • ensuring that the HR profession (and CIPD membership) remains respected and trusted all around the world by broadening and strengthening the definition of professionalism in HR, and ensuring that the HR professionals of the future are equipped with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to earn that trust and respect
  • investing in the CIPD’s own future as a sustainable knowledge business that sets the standard of excellence in people and organisation development
