There are three days to go - it's your chance to make a difference with this general election. Cast your vote and champion better work and working lives!
No matter what our political persuasion, the way we work is important to us all.
Election candidates are all competing for our vote and this means a fantastic opportunity to gain their support on key workplace issues.
Whatever is close to our hearts, flexible working, access to jobs for disadvantaged groups or youth unemployment, this is our opportunity to help change the way we work for the better.
Some ways to get our voices heard are to write to the local candidates and share information on social media.
The CIPD, as champion of workplace issues and as part of their new social action movement, has put together templates and sample questions for people to use to contact their MPs and parliamentary candidates. These can be found at
People up and down the UK are talking about the upcoming General Election on 8 June. Whatever their political persuasion, now is the time for them to get their voice heard on the issues that are important to them. To capitalise on this, the CIPD is asking its members and the wider HR profession to make clear the changes they want to see in the world of work to their local candidates. In the coming weeks, election candidates in local areas will be out with their teams trying to meet with as many voters as they can. This presents a fantastic opportunity to share the CIPD’s Manifesto for Work with local election candidates, and to ask for their support on key workplace issues such as flexible working, access to jobs for disadvantaged groups, and youth unemployment.
