The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) plans to make its map of global standards for the HR profession freely available to all organisations from 1 October 2012.

The HR Profession Map sets out global standards for the HR profession.

It can be used in its current form, in part or in whole, or incorporated into existing competency frameworks.

The map is a framework of the core skills, knowledge and behaviours that form the basis of good HR. It sets out what HR professionals need to know and do at every stage of their career. 

The map was first launched in 2009 as a member-only resource. It was created following research and consultation with HR professionals in a wide range of organisations around the world.

The CIPD says that member feedback has demonstrated that the map is a powerful tool for defining, assessing and building HR capability at an individual and organisational level.

The institute has asked that, in return for free access to the map, HR professionals let it know how they use the map and to share examples of what they are doing to drive success in their organisations.

“The HR Profession Map has always been designed to be a dynamic and ‘live’ document – created by the profession, for the profession. Setting clear standards for the profession, it has been continuously reviewed and informed by research and feedback from the global profession since it was first launched,” said Peter Cheese, CEO of the CIPD.

“We see making it available to all as a next step to ensuring the profession can gain maximum benefit from the work we have done.”
