CIPD Scotland Highlights 2021

We’re delighted to bring you our annual highlights as CIPD in Scotland, showcasing some of our successes and achievements throughout 2021. Throughout 2021 our influence in public policy continued to grow as we’ve increasingly engaged Scottish policy makers on a wide range of devolved workplace matters. A highlight for us this year has been the launch of two new Scotland-wide networks, one for Independent Practitioners and one for OD specialists, these networks give like-minded CIPD members working in similar specialisms the opportunity to collaborate, network, share and learn from each other.

Connect with your local branch

Within Scotland there are four CIPD Branches, run by teams of committed and engaged volunteers. Each branch runs a full and varied programme of events and activities for local CIPD members at all stages of their career and professional development. 

Please note: Due to the current coronavirus situation, we have made the decision to postpone or cancel all face to face branch events until the end of June 2020. Some branches will deliver sessions via virtual means and we ask you to check with the individual branch directly regarding their programme of events. Thank you for your support at this time.
