CIPD Voice

When it comes to ensuring that work is a force for good, our profession has an important role to play as the experts on people, work and change. That’s why we’re creating a new definition of what it means to be a people professional – setting out what we stand for in terms of the fundamental principles which represent better work and working lives.

The world of work

Here we highlight the topics that we believe the CIPD should have an impact and voice on in order to champion better work and working lives. Each topic is explored through research reports, guides, podcasts and factsheets.
