CIPD, a Pedigree in Industrial Welfare

The history of the CIPD begins with its forerunner ‘The Welfare Workers' Association (WWA), which was formed at an employers' conference in York on 6 June 1913. The WWA was founded as " association of employers interested in industrial betterment and of welfare workers engaged by them."

With a further change of name in 1946 to the Institute of Personnel Management (IPM), Chartered status was achieved in 2000 and the IPD was incorporated under Royal Charter from 1 July of that year to become known as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and reported it had a membership of 120,000 practitioners. Today CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), is a globally recognised organisation with over 135,000 members across 120 countries.
