Welcome to our branch area
Thank you for visiting the South East London Branch homepage. We're pleased that you've taken the time to find out more about what we do in the branch.
We're a diverse group of locally-based CIPD members who volunteer to run the branch, with some branch committee members who have dedicated well over a decade to the branch working alongside student members who have joined in the last year. The committee meets regularly to plan our programme of events and manage our branch activities. Our branch ethos is to 'Promote and encourage workplace utopia'.
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed all aspects of our lives, impacting our working lives as HR professionals and moved all our branch events to virtual ones, which provided learning for everyone. We're now able to offer face-to-face branch events again and may also run online sessions too.
Our branch works closely with the University of Greenwich and runs networking and mentoring opportunities for local CIPD students.

Learn about our branch
Our branch programme includes regular events on topics such as the future of HR, organisational development, inclusion and diversity. We have special interest groups for coaching and mentoring, and wellbeing, with events running regularly throughout the year. We also provide the opportunity for all members to network and get to know each other at all of our events.
Our underlying aim is that all our sessions remain topical, are innovative, and that all members feel comfortable and able to engage with the speakers and other members. We want all of our activities to be relevant and enjoyable for all members and would welcome any ideas and suggestions for future events.
Our mission statement at the CIPD South East London Branch is to promote engagement between local stakeholders and CIPD members, to continuously build learning moments, by sharing ideas and growing through individual and team contribution. We will achieve this by raising an awareness of where HR professionals can improve business processes that benefit our members and the local community.
