The business case for organisations

CIPD research shows that most organisations believe investing in the development of its people is vital. It is perceived as a key strategy to differentiate organisations from their competitors and position them to benefit from the eventual improvements in business and consumer confidence.

Our qualifications focus on the role of HR and L&D in building sustainable business success. So by investing in your development, your organisation is maximising the ability of its HR and development function to help contribute to organisational objectives.

Apply your learning straight back to the workplace

Our programmes are business-focused, relevant and practical so you can apply your new knowledge and skills back to the workplace – immediately. Features of CIPD Flexible Learning+ programmes that will help you achieve this include:

  • The highly practical nature of the workbooks which many of our learners tell us aids immediate workplace application – these are a unique resource only available through CIPD Flexible Learning+.
  • Workshops run by consultant facilitators who bring real life examples and practices into the group for discussion. Your organisation will benefit from access to the very latest thinking and expertise in best practice.
  • Assessments which involve finding solutions to real life examples and challenges from your workplace.
