CPHR announces partnership with CIPD

Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of Canada (CPHR) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the United Kingdom-based Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD).

The reciprocal agreement allows members of each organization to expand their respective credentials as well as their professional development opportunities, said Shafiq Jamal, PR consultant with CPHR British Columbia & Yukon, in an email to HRD Canada.

“By enabling CPHR members to add a long-standing and well renowned internationally recognized certification in the form of the CIPD Chartered Membership (MCIPD) to their list of credentials, new opportunities and possibilities emerge,” he said.

“Members can now look at working abroad and/or expanding their ability to increase their knowledge and understanding of international HR practices and policies.”

CPHR Canada represents 31,000 members in the Human Resources Profession across nine provinces and three territories in Canada.

A previous report forecast stable HR employment in Canada in 2024. Previously, more than half of HR professionals planned to make a career move in early 2023, according to Robert Half.

‘Full access’ to member benefits: CIPD

This means members of both unions will have access to more benefits, said CIPD.

“So if you’re a CIPD member, you can become a member of CPHR. And if you’re [a] CPHR member, you can become a member of the CIPD,” it said.

“As part of the agreement you’ll also have full access to both CIPD and CPHR exclusive member benefits.”

CIPD has more than 160,000 members globally, according to its website.

“We want to see good work within inclusive and responsible businesses, making our economies and societies stronger. In our changed and changing world of work, the need to deliver on this has never been more urgent,” CIPD said.

CPHR also recently renewed its partnership with CERC.
