Our Events

CIPD have been setting the benchmark in people and organisational development for more than a century. In 2016, CIPD Ireland Southern Region has developed a programme of events that will show:

  • clear learnings from our past
  • innovation and creativity for our present
  • forward thinking strategic focus for our future

While HR is always about the people, many factors contribute to how HR operates in different organisations. The environment in which we work is ever changing; in every business it is the undisputed role of HR to embrace change and move forward for the good of the organisation and its people. It is our hope that you, our CIPD members, will find these events challenging, informative and an integral part of your own continued professional development.

Our next event is:

Global Talent Mobility
Wednesday 28 September 2016
The Clarion Hotel, Lapps Quay, Cork
