With the use of The CIPD HR Profession Map sets out comprehensively how HR adds the greatest sustained value to the organisation it operates in, now and in the future. It describes the highest standards of professional competence for the organisation.
It captures what successful and effective HR people do and deliver across every aspect and specialism of the profession, and sets out the required underpinning skills, behaviour and knowledge.
The Map is used to develop products and services that not only support the profession as a whole but also support and accelerate the professional development of individuals.
There are 10 professional areas within the Map. The two core professional areas Insights, Strategy and Solutions and Leading HR sit at the heart of the profession and are applicable to all HR professionals regardless of role, location or stage of career, whether inside organisations or working with them. For each particular area the Map describes what you need to do (the activities) and what you need to know at four bands of professional competence, as well as outlining the predominant behaviours that you need to exhibit when carrying out the activities.
The CIPD Profession Map has been designed to be flexible, so you can focus on the areas most relevant to your role, your next career steps, your organisation’s needs or just curiosity!
The 10 Professional areas describe what you need to do (activities) and what you need to know (knowledge) for each area of the HR profession at four bands of professional competence.
Within this section the Map describes the behaviours needed to carry out activities in more detail. Each behaviour is also divided into four bands of professional competence (spanning from entry level to leadership roles). Each behaviour also lists a number of contra indicators which illustrate negative behaviour.
