CIPD launches new management certificate

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has launched a new certificate for managers.

The CIPD Managing People Certificate aims to help managers improve their personal performance and develop their line management skills.

Research from the CIPD suggests that many UK managers are failing to do an effective job. Almost half of employees (43%) are dissatisfied with the relationship with their line manager, while one-third of employees (30%) say they rarely or never get feedback on their performance.

Mike Emmott, CIPD employee relations adviser, said: "Poor management skills leave staff feeling disengaged and can damage productivity levels in businesses.

"Getting people to turn up for work is the easy bit. Managers and team leaders need to know how to engage staff, manage performance, deal with problems and lead teams if they are to make a real contribution to the business."
