Public policy engagement at the CIPD involves both engaging with ministers and other policy makers and engaging our members to ensure that we draw on the knowledge and expertise within our 140,000-strong membership to inform our views to government. This two-way engagement can help influence policy making and day-to-day people management practice, for example by ensuring members are aware of changes to legislation or new practitioner guidance developed in response to our public policy work.
The CIPD is the leading independent voice on workplace performance and skills. We draw on our extensive research and the expertise and experience of our members on the front-line to highlight and promote new and best practice and produce practical guidance for the benefit of employers, employees and policy makers.
On a macro-economic scale, our expertise and the data we gather from our membership gives us an unrivalled capacity to accurately forecast labour market trends and to consider the impact of employment legislation across all sectors and sizes of organisation.
