UK – CIPD to offer free HR standards

25 September 2012

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) will make its HR Profession Map, which sets out global standards for the HR profession, freely available to HR communities.

From 1 October 2012, the CIPD is making the standards available to all organisations, businesses and HR professionals.

The CIPD first launched the HR Profession Map in 2009 as a member-only resource which offers a framework of the core skills, knowledge and behaviours of HR.

The Map sets out what HR professionals need to know and do at different stages of their career. This has also led to a review of the CIPD's qualifications and membership structure that has since been implemented.

“The HR Profession Map has always been designed to be a dynamic and ‘live’ document – created by the profession, for the profession,” said Peter Cheese, CEO at the CIPD.”

“Setting clear standards for the profession, it has been continuously reviewed and informed by research and feedback from the global profession since it was first launched. We see making it available to all as a next step to ensuring the profession can gain maximum benefit from the work we have done.

“By taking this step, we are committed to making it as easy as possible for professionals, as well as other international bodies representing HR, to engage with us and to ensure that efforts to build HR capability for individuals and organisations remain up-to-date, dynamic and internationally relevant.”
