The CIPD as we know it today started life in 1913 as the Welfare Workers’ Association (WWA). We have been helping people and organisations realise their potential ever since, and today we are the voice of a worldwide community of around 150,000 members. We first became known as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in 2000, when we were granted a Royal Charter. Today we are known simply as the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development.
