CIPD London Annual Conference 2021

People-driven workforce transformation

Recent events have proven that People Professionals are at the heart of driving transformation in work and are inherent to creating more purposeful, inclusive and productive cultures. Organisations now more than ever, need the support of People Professionals in building these responsible practices, through prioritising health & wellbeing, employment & skills and diversity & inclusion.

And as many industries have faced months of forced working from home resulting in hybrid and flexible working becoming a reality for many, but not all – we need to think about how do we adopt the right approach for our own organisation’s needs and the diverse requirements of our people?

Join us on 25 November to learn how you can help transform the world of work and be ready for future challenges.  

Our annual conference provides the perfect opportunity to connect with your fellow practitioners and keep up to date with the latest CIPD insights and experience from leading professionals.

We look forward to welcoming  to celebrate the achievements of our profession.

Conference agenda and speakers to be announced soon.
