In her monthly update to members, CIPR President Jenni Field reflects on the key findings from our recent State of the Profession report. and what it suggests about how the profession will emerge from the pandemic.

Jenni outlines that while the report was not intended to provide a “retrospective view” of the industry, it is a “great benchmark” for what the profession can look back on as we move forwards. In particular she highlights the collaborative approach to learning and the sense of community identified in the report, as well as the drive towards professionalism, as providing a resilience in the face of a challenging economic climate. This optimism follows the news that in July we welcomed our 1,000th new member of 2020 and that since lockdown 20 members have become chartered.

July highlights: 

  • We published the 10th annual State of the Profession report. The study found a profession "out of step" with the views of the general public on the issue of social mobility. More here.
