Summary of the CIPD’s HR Profession Map (HRPM)

The Human Resource Profession Map (MPRM) was introduced to the CIPD to help HR professionals both identify their levels of professional competence, and assess their development needs now, and throughout their developing career in HR. The map captures what effective and successful HR people do in their jobs and what they deliver across every aspect of the profession, and sets out the required activities, behaviour and knowledge.

It covers 10 professional areas, and 8 behaviours, set across four bands from Band 1: Administrator, Band 2: Senior PR actioner, Band 3: Consultant, and Band 4: HR Director.

The map is a self-assessment tool, and the results should be compared with other sources such as job descriptions, and performance reviews, to get the most out of the result and recommendations.

The 2 main professional areas are Strategy and Solutions, and Leading HR. There are 8 other key areas called behaviours. Each behaviour is described at four bands of professional competence, and has a serious of contra – indicators which illustrate the negative manifestations of the behaviours.

It has been designed to be relevant and applicable to HR professionals operating anywhere in the world, in all sectors and in organisations of all shapes and sizes.

I have completed the HRPM for the following areas:

* Employee Relations (Key Area)

Recommendation for Behaviour: Collaborative:

Recommendation| Action|
Observe and, together with your manager, understand the role you prefer to play in a team. Experiment with different roles to vary the contribution you make and develop new skills.| I would find out my Belbin results which are PL, I am a plant, and look to develop contacts with people who have different results. This would also help me in building relationships and networking.| How extensive is your network?
