The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has announced a partnership with Haymarket Media Group, which will provide various events services for its members and for professionals in the field of people.

Starting from today, this partnership extension means that Haymarket will deliver the organisation’s  internationally-renowned events programme.

The CIPD and Haymarket have been working together since 2012 to produce the quarterly journal Work, as well as People Management – the largest circulating human resources magazine in the country.

Haymarket CEO Kevin Costello commented: “I’m delighted that such an important and influential organisation as the CIPD has chosen to expand its strategic partnership with Haymarket. Our values are aligned, our skill sets perfectly match the brief from CIPD and we understand their strategic drivers.

“We believe this expanded partnership will allow us to support and enhance the CIPD offer as they continue to build professional capital within the HR community, and amplify their voice in the wider business community. There are already exciting plans in the pipeline!”

Haymarket will continue to produce the CIPD People Management Awards and the multi-platform People Management brand, which includes the magazines, social media channels, website and jobsite. 

The site promotes a better quality of work and working life and encourages people professionals to make confident choices to progress in their careers.

Through the partnership, Haymarket Business Media – the b2b media and events division of Haymarket – will establish a new Professional Associations Events Team made up of 30 people.

Haymarket Network, the company’s content marketing agency, will ensure that all media channels across the partnership deliver the CIPD’s vision.

Peter Cheese, Chief Executive of the CIPD, said: “Haymarket has a 60-year heritage in producing best-in-class content and services to professionals and membership organisations across a range of different sectors.

"We’ve been working closely with the team for five years on our media brands and awards and have built a trusted relationship and seen great value from the quality of their journalistic capability and their ability to deliver multi-channel content that engages our 140,000-strong membership and the wider business community."
