CIPD members gain chartered status

From
today, all 37,000 full members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and
Development (CIPD), become chartered in their own right.

Members
who have met the CIPD’s rigorous standards will, for the first time, carry the
Privy Council’s badge of recognition of their expertise, knowledge and
professionalism.

The
new standard puts them on a par with those in other chartered professions such
as engineering and accountancy.

CIPD
director general Geoff Armstrong said: “This is premier league recognition, and
means that our full members will have their credentials recognised in the same
way as their peers in other professions.

"Chartered
status shows employers and other stakeholders in the workplace that a member of
the CIPD is an experienced and qualified professional who is constantly
updating their knowledge and skills," he said.
