Our community of like-minded professionals grew to nearly 150,000 this year*. As their professional body, we want each and every one of our members to trust us to support them in the changing world of work.

Throughout the course of the year, we asked our members to tell us about their perceptions and experience of the CIPD. We learnt a lot – both about what we're doing well, and where we need to improve. The vast majority agree that we are fulfilling our purpose of championing better work and working lives, and see us as an important career partner. But there's more we can do to increase our relevance and provide better value for money.
