Lesley joins elite with chartered status

03 June 2016

Lesley Mitchell, the Institute’s Head of Human Resources & Office Services, has become a Chartered Fellow of Chartered Institute of Personnel and  Development (CIPD). The CIPD is the professional body for HR and people development and Chartered Fellowship is the highest level of professional membership it can bestow. It is widely recognised as achieving the gold standard within the profession.

Working for a professional membership organisation myself, I really understand the value of progressing through the membership levels with the CIPD and I am proud to have achieved Chartered Fellowship. It feels great to have my achievements and commitment to the profession recognised. I would encourage anyone thinking about applying for a membership upgrade with their professional body to go for it!

LesleyThe CIPD says: “A Chartered Fellow is a role model for the profession and part of a select group of senior HR and L&D professionals and business leaders that lead and drive innovative people practices to help deliver the organisation’s strategy. A Chartered Fellow demonstrates a commitment to promoting and sharing the highest standards. They’re committed to developing others as well as themselves and are compliant with an ethical Code of Professional Conduct.”

RTPI Chief Executive, Trudi Elliott, said: “We are very proud of Lesley and her achievement. This award is a tremendous testament to Lesley’s commitment to her profession and a mark of the excellence of the service the Institute is able to provide to its staff and volunteers.”
