'CIPD will stay ahead of change'
The new chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has promised the organisation will stay ahead of business change, a report claims.

Jackie Orme, speaking at the CIPD national conference last night, said she realised the need for the body to remain relevant and added that she had three main priorities.

These were: being topical, making sure the CIPD was at the forefront of research into the future of human resources and ensuring professionals had the ability to adapt to its changing functions, Personnel Today reports.

She said the CIPD needed to be "leading change, not just following it".

"Challenging times have been brought into sharp focus by the collapse of the Lehman Brothers and the stock market has followed it since," the news provider claims she added.

Recently the CIPD highlighted the importance of employee training in the workplace, saying the everyday skills workers need are changing.
