People-driven workforce transformation

In 2022, the people profession will be driving transformation in work, to create more purposeful, inclusive, and productive working cultures and environments.

A responsible people strategy will lead to sustainable growth in all areas but how do we adopt the right approach for our own organisation’s needs and the diverse requirements of our people?

CIPD’s conference in Scotland in 2022 will be your opportunity to connect with your fellow practitioners in person, to learn how you can help transform the world of work and employees’ working lives.

With a programme of keynote speakers, panel sessions, case studies and research-focused presentations, you will have the chance to hear the latest of the CIPD’s insights and learn from the experiences of other organisations, to solve the most pressing issues affecting organisations in Scotland.
