Context

The CIPD`s Good Work Index (2020) found that many poor-quality jobs could be easily improved by changing people management practices. The CIPD called on the people profession to `shake up` how we work - for the benefit of workers and employers. The report noted some key areas for improvement which included:

  • values, culture and leadership;
  • workforce planning and organisational development;
  • employment relations; and
  • people analytics and reporting.
