CIPD’s Chief Economic Adviser to step down

johnpThe Chief Economic Adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is to step down from his role.

John Philpott (pictured left) has announced his intention to leave the CIPD in the autumn.

The news follows the CIPD's announcement earlier this month that Peter Cheese will become the new Chief Executive in July, as current chief executive Jackie Orme steps down from the position to focus on her rehabilitation and treatment for cancer.

Sue Upton, CIPD Managing Director, says: “The CIPD is extremely sad to hear of John Philpott’s decision to move on.  Without doubt the country’s leading labour market economist, we have been incredibly fortunate to be able to rely on his exceptional knowledge, analysis and integrity over the last 12 years. 

“His record of cool, calm accuracy, often in the face of hostile criticism from those who have found his forecasts uncomfortable, has been exceptional.” 

John Philpott says: “I decided some months ago that after such a long tenure at the CIPD the time is now right for me to leave to refresh my insatiable interest in economic and employment policy matters in pastures new.

“With Jackie Orme’s successor as Chief Executive now confirmed I can formally announce my departure. I have enjoyed working for the CIPD since November 2000 and wish the Institute and Peter Cheese well in the future, especially in the 2013 centenary year."
