The CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, is pleased to announce a new alliance with Engage for Success, the voluntary movement committed to promoting employee engagement. The alliance will see the CIPD taking full ownership of Engage for Success and responsibility for its operations from 1 July 2018.
The move reflects the fact that engagement is a core theme for the HR profession and brings together two organisations at the forefront of this issue. Their combined voice will seek to influence wider policy thinking and elevate the importance of employee engagement in creating more productive and aligned workforces.
With the CIPD’s support, the Engage for Success movement will continue to bring together a wide community of practitioners and volunteers to understand and address employee engagement challenges and opportunities across the UK.
Peter Cheese, CIPD Chief Executive, said: “Engage for Success has been hugely successful in creating a movement to raise the profile of employee engagement and in shining a light on good practice. We look forward to working together to enhance the organisation’s ability to have an even bigger impact in the future. Employee engagement is ever more important in creating better working lives for individuals, better organisations and better outcomes for our economy and society. We are delighted to welcome the organisation into the CIPD family.”
David MacLeod and Nita Clarke of Engage for Success, said: “We have much to be proud of with Engage for Success’s achievements since 2011. We are excited about the future with the CIPD and together we can be even more effective in growing awareness about the power and potential of employee engagement, providing evidence and research that organisations who engage and inspire their employees produce world class levels of innovation, performance and productivity.”
