Ensuring your voice is heard in matters of policy

The CIPD is the leading independent voice on workplace performance and skills. It draws on its extensive research and the expertise and experience of its 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 macroeconomic scale, CIPD expertise and data gathered from its membership gives it an unrivalled capacity to accurately forecast labour market trends and to consider the impact of employment legislation across all sectors and sizes of organisation.

The CIPD engages with government and policy-makers in a variety of ways, regularly attending private meetings with Ministers and Shadow Cabinet members, as well as key stakeholders in Whitehall and other business organisations. The CIPD also produces a large number of reports each year providing insight into the broad spectrum of issues that affect the workplace.

The CIPD responds to a wide range of consultations, ensuring that its voice is heard in matters of policy that will affect its members and the wider business community.

Keep ahead of changes in legislation & government policy

The CIPD Manchester Branch Public Policy Panel is aimed at experienced HR professionals and provides an opportunity for its members to contribute and their share experience, while learning and networking.

Contribute to government consultations

Attending Public Policy Panel meetings is an excellent way to keep ahead of changes in legislation & government policy. We regularly contribute to the formation of CIPD policy and take part in research for other organisations and universities. We welcome new people, and hold all meetings under the Chatham House Rule, which reads:

‘When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.’
