HR managers want the CIPD to change the timing of its annual conference in Harrogate as it clashes with the half-term holiday.
Personneltoday.com readers have responded to its survey asking if the date should be moved.
CIPD member Rosie Serpis has two school-age children and does not want to be away from them during half-term.
Parnutt Food’s systems manager Alison Sandhu could not go because of the clash, but said, “However, if it is put back much further it starts to impact on the people taking November’s national exams.”
Peter Prowse of Bradford Management Centre pointed out that the CIPD provided a free crèche at Harrogate, which his son used.
