This week’s feedback

We asked delegates at the CIPD conference if chartered status raised the profile of the institute

Paul Harrop, European HR director of pharmaceuticals development company Kendle International

  • “The CIPD gaining its chartered status has been a major development because it will gain recognition for personnel people. It is also a major leap forward because it will gain us more recognition in Europe.”


Clare Curran, personnel director, University of Teeside

  • “Gaining chartered status has raised the profile of the personnel profession and greatly improved how we are seen. The profession has come a tremendous way from its roots in welfare.”


Winston Sotubo-Duncan, head of HR, Radio-communications Agency

  • “The CIPD should be paying more attention to its members. It should consult more with them so it knows what issues to address.”


Bob Carlyle, HR director, Coats Viyella Clothing

  • “More people will be drawn towards the profession. The CIPD must continue to promote our role as HR professionals so people can identify us.”


Philip Tomkins, HR manager, Allied Leisure

  • “[The chartered status] has made no difference to me at all.”


Lorraine Mercer, personnel officer, Van Den Bergh Foods

  • “It has gone from strength to strength – to be made a chartered institute has boosted the profile of the profession.”
