We’ve had a great response to the MOU announcement on Twitter and LinkedIn. We’ll also have a piece in an upcoming People Management issues.
We’re now focused on delivering benefits for our members. We’ve already agreed with CIPD, that HPMA, UHR and ourselves will sit on the CIPD Policy Forum – this is a great opportunity to ensure public services issues are reflected here.
We’re also being given early sight of the new CIPD Professional Standards Framework. CIPD are doing a huge amount of work on this and you may have already contributed by attending CIPD workshops. The opportunity for us to respond to this will mean that we can better ensure that the work you do can be reflected in CIPD qualifications and ongoing CPD.
We are also working with partners on our research programme. As an example, we’ll be including Healthcare and Universities colleagues in our Brexit research.
This year’s Northern Forum will include MOU Partners. We are delighted about this. We’ll be in Leeds on October 10th and 11th – so save the date.
We’ve just submitted our consultation response to the Government’s Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill. We have worked really closely with some partners in Safe Lives, Standing Together and EIDA (Employers Initiative on Domestic Abuse). It’s been a great collaboration and we’ll keep you posted on progress.
We’ll be introducing a new events calendar over the next few weeks – we wanted to give you an easy way of finding out about what is going on, where Karen, Leatham, Steve and other Board members will be – and when upcoming events are being held.
Don’t forget to follow progress on www.ppma.org.uk. If you haven’t been following us on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn please do – we’re ramped up activity on our social media channels.
Until next month, take care and please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
