Welcome to the Hertfordshire Branch of the CIPD. Hertfordshire has one of the largest branches with over 3,000 members.
We run a lively programme of evening and weekend events, designed to help local HR practitioners develop their professional knowledge and network with like-minded people.
We also have active special interest groups for self-employed consultants, training and development specialists and those interested in policy issues.
See our events listings for details of forthcoming sessions - and make sure you book your place early!

Herts branch is now using the business networking site LinkedIn as an additional vehicle for communicating with the local HR community.
There is an 'HR in Herts' group up and running, where you can find out about local events and activities, network with fellow HR professionals and get information about local jobs and opportunties.
If you would like to join the group, you need to register a profile on LinkedIn (it's very quick and easy). Once you are on LinkedIn you can find the group by searching for 'HR in Herts'. The search box is on the LinkedIn home page. If you would like further information, just get in touch

Special Interest Groups
The branch runs occasional special events for those interested in the fields of learning and development and diversity and for self-employed practitioners. It also has a virtual Policy Group. See our events listings for details.
Employee engagement is a key theme for the CIPD in the year ahead.
