Welcome to CIPD Scotland
The CIPD team in Scotland works closely with our network of members, volunteers and stakeholders to develop the profession and build our policy relevance and reach. Our mission is to establish the voice of CIPD in Scotland.
With more than 11,000 CIPD members across Scotland, we sit at the heart of a proud, growing community of practitioners, members, partners, policymakers and thought leaders in the world of work. Through our collaborative efforts we’ll take big steps towards championing better work and working lives.
What we do
Engaging on Policy
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.
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.
