New Career Map for HR Professionals


The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the professional body for those involved in the management and development of people. The organisation currently has 133,000 individual members.

The CIPD has just launched its new HR Profession Map, which is intended to illustrate the knowledge and skills required for the ten major areas in which an HR Manager will generally operate.

  • Give examples of specific activities that you would expect the HR Manager to undertake for each of the ten areas on the map.
  • Which of the areas describe "hard" HR strategy or activity, and which describe "soft" HR strategy or activity?
  • Are there some areas described on the map that are only likely to be undertaken by the HR Manager in a large organisation?
