The proposition for Centre membership is based upon an annual membership fee of £12,000 each year, contracted over a 3 year membership commitment. The Centre intends to build a network of around 20 organisations in its next phase of work.
The core offerings of the Centre to members comprise of:
1. The running of Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The current SIGs –Talent ,OD, and Engagement have proved very successful and developed from an arena for an exchange of best practice, research and publications into genuine developmental forums with specific outputs such as the Talent SIG’s Boardroom Engagement research and the OD Best Practice Process. We will also develop new SIGs provisionally in the areas of Global HR and HR Strategy. With these new SIGs we would continue the practice of pairing a Practitioner Lead with a Centre Academic Lead.
2. The production of three research-based White Papers annually. These White Papers are now free to Centre members, with a selection being made available publically at a charge. Our White Papers have been received enthusiastically externally and have frequently involved our partners in development. We will continue and build further the involvement process. White Paper topics will be developed in consultation with our partners. The White Paper topics address a number of topics identified a year in advance by Centre Member HR Directors:
3. Access to the Centre Intranet and the information resources it contains.
CPHR can also offer an “annual conference” activity, on a cost only basis, targeted at our HR Directors and their senior teams, and run at an attractive conference venue with a mix of high quality practitioner and academic inputs.
