We were thrilled to be helping the CIPD Manchester Branch mark its centenary with a joint conference entitled ‘Is HR the Business?’

The event was an excellent opportunity to engage with leading HR thinking and network with other HR professionals and industry experts from across the region. Attendees left the event with new ideas to take back to their organisations.

The day also marked the launch of the Centre for People and Performance.

Date: Friday 12 July 2013
Time: 10am until 3:30pm
Venue: MMU Business School
