Giving HR a voice

The CIPD's voice and influence, coupled with the actions of our members, is helping to ensure that the future of work is good for all of us.

We use our insights and expertise to encourage relevant stakeholders to invest in the HR and L&D profession, as well as other capabilities and practices that help to champion better work and working lives. Policy makers and media frequently turn to us for an expert, impartial view on the world of work.

Research and thought leadership

Our team of dedicated research advisers work in partnership with renowned business and management schools to deliver insights on:

  • the changing context of work
  • the science of human and organisational behaviour
  • commercial insights and HR analytics
  • processes, practices and policies in HR and learning.

Taking action

We encourage and support our members to use their skills and experience to help us drive positive change in the world of work. We champion a culture of volunteering in the workplace by giving our members opportunities to volunteer through our branch network and programmes such as Steps Ahead Mentoring, as well as conducting research into employer-supported volunteering and the implications for HR and L&D professionals.
