In order to support our members and the CIPD activity in the market, we created local communities, our regions, nations and our network of local branches.

Our nations and regions are headed up by in-market teams who will not only support you and make sure your voice is heard as a people professional but they engage and build relationships with wider HR communities and networks, employers, HR Leaders, Government agencies and academic centres to ensure our work reflects the diversity and needs of members across the UK. Our local branches are driven by CIPD members who volunteer their time, skills and experience to support CIPD’s charitable purpose and who work closely with and alongside the UK Nations and Regions team to Champion Better Work and Working Lives.

Our regional structure is designed to:

  • Raise the voice of the profession and build CIPD advocacy through managing relationships with key stakeholders.

  • Develop and collaborate with local communities of practice and networks to engage our people practitioners in our latest insights, research and professional standards.

  • Deliver flagship Annual Conferences across all nations and regions on the big people, change and workplace challenges, giving our members inspiration and opportunity to share and network.

  • Recognise and celebrate great People Practice at our national awards.

  • Consult and engage with policymakers on workplace practices by sharing our insight and analysis on national and regional labour markets.
