The CIPD is constantly monitoring developments regarding coronavirus.  We've decided to postpone all face-to-face events and short courses until the end of June. Our focus is on the welfare of our members and we wanted to bring some clarity in a very uncertain time.

Coronavirus online forums

The CIPD LIVE - Leadership In a Virtual Environment series is designed to help employers and people professionals navigate the unprecedented landscape created by the coronavirus pandemic. 

These free member forums are your essential tool to connect with the profession, hear what others are doing, ask questions, and gain insights on how to develop your organisation's response to the key issues
