CIPR becomes fully virtual in move which embraces new ways of working and ensures more value to members

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) is a virtual organisation after closing its London offices at the end of last week in a move that means it can “fully embrace new ways of working and ensure more resources are directed towards value to members”. 

The move, first announced some months ago, follows an extended period of remote working in response to the pandemic. The reduction in fixed costs allows for sustained investment into member support services and the ability to meet charter obligations more effectively. 

All contact with the CIPR should now be electronic and the Institute kindly requests no post is sent to the old address.   

The royal charter and other objects of importance are in safekeeping, while historic records have been sent to the History of Advertising Trust (HAT) archive.

Alastair McCapra, CIPR Chief Executive
Over the last few months CIPR staff have risen to the challenge of remote working with tremendous energy and determination. They have been productive and focused, and have worked hard to support our members. Over seven months of remote working we’ve learned how to work together in new ways, and we can say goodbye to our old office with confidence. Now we can fully embrace new ways of working and ensure more resources are directed towards value to members.
