CIPD and Public Policy

Higher performance at work, better pathways into work


Public policy at the CIPD exists to inform and shape debate, government policy and legislation for the benefit of employees and employers, to improve best practice in the workplace, to promote high standards of work and to represent the interests of our members at the highest level.

The CIPD is the professional body for HR and people development. We have more than 140,000 members internationally, working across private businesses and organisations in the public and voluntary sectors. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, the CIPD is committed to championing better work and working lives for the benefit of individuals, businesses, economies and society.

We bring together extensive research and thought leadership, practical advice and guidance, along with the experience and expertise of our diverse membership base, to engage with politicians, civil servants, policy-makers and commentators to champion better work and working lives. We also regularly comment on the latest public policy issues from the world of work through CIPD blogs.

On a macro-economic scale, our expertise and the data we gather from our membership gives us an unrivalled capacity to forecast accurately labour market trends and to consider the impact of employment legislation across all sectors and sizes of organisation.
