CIPD Trust Impact report 2022-23

We’re proud to publish our first Impact report. 

At the heart of our work is the commitment to drive social change in the people profession. Leveraging the expertise of skilled mentors from the profession and the support of the CIPD’s 160,000 professional members, we aim to influence systemic change. Our goal is to create a more diverse profession and foster a fairer, more accessible world of work.  

In the report, we also demonstrate how we’ve performed against our Impact framework and give invaluable insights into the difference the expertise of people professionals has made. 

Some of the people we’ve supported over the year and the organisations we’ve worked with, bringing real, tangible benefits are also featured. 

It reflects on a transformative year marked by the expansion and delivery of our programmes, as well as a fresh approach to assessing our impact across our three core outcomes.

The CIPD and the CIPD Trust

The CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, has been championing better work and working lives for over 100 years. We created the CIPD Trust in April 2022. We did it to grow our social impact, amplify our purpose, extend our charitable works and continue to build diversity within our profession.
