An opportunity to shape our programme for 2014/15
In my position of Chair of the Manchester Branch of the CIPD - I am often asked by our members how we construct our programme of events. Well it is a year long activity culminating in the whole committee which consists of 20 strong volunteers from various backgrounds getting together to produce a programme that is innovative, creative and interesting.
We have been approached by the CIPD Wimbledon to identify local projects that could have an impact on improving better work and working lives. We would really encourage all our members to get involved in helping us to shape our activities for 2014/15. We are constantly striving to understand what your requirements are from us and how we can improve our offering to you.
My personal mission is to build the CIPD brand and to prove that HR really is the business. The CIPD participate in current trends that are high on the government agenda for example Auto-enrolment and Megatrends. The ethos of the CIPD is to champion better work and working lives through improving people management and development practices to build on greater value for organisations, benefiting society and the economy.
