How did you get into HR?

In 2015, Changeboard published an article asking: ‘How can we make HR a more appealing career?’ in which the CIPD’s head of career development, Claire Bishop, unveiled an innovative way of exploring a career in HR . Via a dedicated platform on careers website, Plotr, this used gamification to inspire 11-24 year-olds about a number of professions.

“HR still struggles to be seen as an exciting and rewarding career,” explained Bishop. “So, to raise awareness of its scope and appeal, the CIPD launched a virtual ‘HR world’.”

Bishop’s article created extensive buzz and debate – not just among young people, but within our own community of business leaders.
