Going online

Due to the ongoing response to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year’s CIPD Annual Conference and Exhibition will take place
online. As the majority of workforces continue to work from home, we appreciate you may have other work and family
commitments. However amidst these turbulent times, we believe it is especially important that you continue to receive the
learning and development necessary to tackle ongoing disruptions and adversities with confidence.

In addition, opening up the conversation to a global audience will only serve to enrich your insights and enable a greater depth
of understanding, as you network and share your challenges with fellow people professionals across the world.
