Description

Join us on Thursday 27 April at a free CIPD event to help shape and develop a social action movement (volunteering and campaigning activities), to build a future world of work where organisations are doing well by doing good, HR professionals use their skills to help individuals, and people from all backgrounds are at the centre of work.

To scope this out, the event will bring together about 100 business leaders, HR volunteers, social action campaigners, entrepreneurs, young people and other beneficaires.
