John Philpott announces intention to step down as Chief Economic Adviser at the CIPD
John Philpott, Chief Economic Adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, has today announced his intention to leave the Institute in the autumn.
Sue Upton, CIPD Managing Director, said:
“The CIPD is extremely sad to hear of John Philpott’s decision to move on. Without doubt the country’s leading labour market economist, we have been incredibly fortunate to be able to rely on his exceptional knowledge, analysis and integrity over the last 12 years. His record of cool, calm accuracy, often in the face of hostile criticism from those who have found his forecasts uncomfortable, has been exceptional. Our members, businesses and policy makers have been able to rely upon and plan on the basis of his forecasts, and his departure will be a sad day for the Institute.
“John has informed me of his intention to take some time out to reflect on the next steps in his career. I am sure, once those reflections are complete, that he will have no problem at all finding a home for his talents and expertise. All of us at the CIPD wish him well for the future”.
John Philpott said:
"I decided some months ago that after such a long tenure at the CIPD the time is now right for me to leave to refresh my insatiable interest in economic and employment policy matters in pastures new. With Jackie Orme’s successor as Chief Executive now confirmed I can formally announce my departure. I have enjoyed working for the CIPD since November 2000 and wish the Institute and Peter Cheese well in the future, especially in the 2013 centenary year."
