Welcome from the Chair
Thank you for visiting the Central London Branch homepage.
My role as Chair is to provide you, and the other 3,500 members in our branch, with networking and learning opportunities right here in Central London.
We have three ‘themes’ for the year ahead and we’ve been busy building a range of events, communications and other activities around them.
These themes are as follows:
1) HR capability: key areas of skill and knowledge to keep you ‘ahead of the curve’ as an HR professional. In particular this year we are interested in data analytics, productivity, business partnering, legal compliance and becoming ‘future ready’. Do let me know if you can recommend or volunteer an expert to either speak or write on any of these.
2) Mentoring: we want to train more members to be mentors and match them up with members who are looking for mentoring. Look out for more details of this in our newsletters.
3) Networks and communities: our aim here is to build the physical and virtual forums to connect you with people who can help you, whether you’re looking for a technical subject expert, someone from your own sector to chat to or an HR consultant to work with. Again, get in touch if there is a particular medium or group you think would work well.
Central London Branch works closely with CIPD HQ in Wimbledon and with the six other branches of CIPD London. As a Committee though, we are all volunteers and always appreciative of your ideas and support, whether it is to volunteer a venue, contribute to our social media output or ‘meet and greet’ at events.
Do let me know if you’d like to get involved, otherwise I look forward to hearing from you or meeting you in the next few months.
CIPD London - a local branch partnership
We are also a part of CIPD London – a collaboration between 7 regional branches – and we are working together to strengthen the links between all our branches, draw on our collective expertise and contacts, and create and promote a London-wide events programme. So no matter which CIPD London branch you belong to you are welcome to attend events across the capital.
