World Economic Forum



Join us for a series of keynotes and workshops at York Racecourse on 8 & 9 June 2018 and for the Northern Area Partnership Annual Dinner & Awards on the evening of 8 June – always a truly special and memorable occasion. 

Over the 2 days we will:

    • Explore how we do find the balance between increasing technology and automation, and the human side of work.

    • Consider why it is now more important than ever before, to put the human back into human resources

    • Learn, connect and engage with ideas and fellow professionals about the role of HR in creating The Human Workplace.

    • Hear from industry experts discussing practical ways of bringing humanity into our work practices and the entire employee lifecycle.


If you've never been to CIPDNAP before - please do join us, it's noted as one of the friendliest HR conferences, a real community - if you know noone when you arrive, you'll leave having made many new contacts and friends!

CIPD Northern Area Partnership

The Northern Area Partnership (NAP) is the coming together of the 10 Branches across the north of England from the Scottish Borders and draws a line from Cheshire in the west over to North Yorkshire and Humber in the east.

The Branches are: Cumbria, Humber, Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside and North Cheshire, North East of England, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and District, Tees Valley and West Yorkshire

Our purpose is to organise and provide activities for our members that the individual Branches could not otherwise organise. Every year* a volunteer organising committee organises a Conference for members.

*Annual conferences ran at various locations across the NAP region for over 25 years until 2000. They were reintroduced in May 2011 at York with the agreement that it would re-establish and run in York the home of the CIPD with the aim that it may eventually move around the region.

All Members and Non Members across the world are very welcome to book and attend our Conference.

if you would like any further information please contact the the branch development team on 0208 612 6708 or
