Scotland faces significant workplace and labour market challenges. None of these challenges will be met unless the HR and people and development profession is at the centre of driving the required changes to help shift skills and transform the workplace. Our focus is to:
Identify the big issues around people and development which need to be addressed, and enthuse and engage members and policy makers in how we can tackle them.
Put CIPD’s vision of ‘championing better work and working lives’ at the heart of the HR, business and policy conversation.
Whatever the political and constitutional issues it will be the workplace and the labour market in which solutions will be found, including:
Analysing, understanding and addressing the big challenges regarding the future of work in Scotland; such as technology, automation and innovation.
Working with government and other organisations to improve the workplace by building wellbeing, engagement and resilience in the Scottish workforce through good HR practice in everything from diversity to reward, and learning so that we can adapt to whatever future we face.
Building Scotland’s workforce by focusing on skills and training through a lifelong learning approach.
Building our profession for the future in Scotland, and focusing on the skills and capabilities which HR and learning professionals can uniquely contribute will help us to embed the changes we need to see and equip Scotland for the future.
