Katharine Turner, Stephen Frost, Clare Chapman, have joined the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) as Vice presidents, bolstering the institute’s number of VPs to 7.
Turner, with over twenty-five years of experience in the field of remuneration, says she is “delighted to be taking up this important role. Effective reward and performance are crucial aspects of people management and vital contributors to engagement and hence organisational effectiveness, particularly in times of austerity. I look forward to working with the CIPD over the next two years and supporting the work of HR and reward professionals with the challenges ahead."

Employing over 135,000 staff, the CIPD is Europe’s largest organisation dedicated to HR and personnel development.

Stephen Frost, previously the Head of Diversity and Inclusion at the Olympic and Paralympic games has now been made the Vice President of the same job description at the CIPD.
“SHR needs to drive greater diversity and inclusion to help organisations understand the business case for creating a workforce made up of many talents.” Stated Frost. “In the lead up to the London 2012 Games our challenge is to communicate and influence good practice. I hope to share this insight with the CIPD as we embark on that journey."

Jackie Orme, CIPD Chief Executive, says: "We are extremely lucky at the CIPD to be able to benefit from the expertise of these top leaders in the profession and we welcome their support in this time of change.

"As I said in my opening address at this years' Annual Conference, 'what we do over the next two years will define the role and contribution of our profession for the next 20 years'. With this in mind, we look to the future as we help shape the thinking and practice of HR. Our new team members will ensure that the CIPD will continue to benefit from a wealth of talent within the HR profession."
