Sponsor of Michael Kelly Outstanding Student Awards
CIPD Flexible Learning+ is proud to sponsor the Michael Kelly Outstanding Student Awards.
CIPD Flexible Learning+ offers a flexible and practical route to the main CIPD qualifications, and combines the strengths of two leading names in HR, CIPD Enterprises, the specialist learning arm of the CIPD, and MOL, an established market leader who has successfully delivered CIPD study programmes for over 20 years.
We have a commitment to encouraging great student achievement which is exemplified by MOL’s exam results which are consistently 10-15% higher than the average and in the past 10 years, thirteen MOL learners have achieved CIPD Awards for Outstanding Performance.
The unique design of the programmes is such that it enables our students to fit their study around their day to day work life. But more than that, we ensure that our programmes are especially relevant to what our students are working on at the time. Our facilitators are all experts who, when they are not working with us, are on assignments with a wide range of organisations. The currency of their experience and expertise brings key ideas and theories to life, enriching the learning experience of our students, and helping them to apply immediately what they learn in their day to day role. This is further reinforced by the convenience of a centre close to you (we have centres nationwide) and the multiple start dates to choose from.
So our students are able to bring considerable benefits to their organisations, through the practical nature of what they learn from the programme, and importantly, through the time that this unique method of study enables them to continue to dedicate to their organisations.
CIPD Flexible Learning+ is committed to delivering programmes to improve HR and L&D performance at all levels and offers qualifications to suit the needs of both individuals and organisations.

Sponsor of HR innovation through technology
SuccessFactors, an SAP company, helps organisations align strategy with objectives and manage people performance to ensure execution and results.The company has more than 15 million subscribers and 3,500 customers in 168 countries, 35 languages, and 60 industries. SuccessFactors customers outperform the broader market and the competition because of better business execution.
Even when a company develops the right strategy, there’s no guarantee it will lead to results. Building more efficient HR processes is only the beginning. Strategy must lead to action that increases growth, efficiency, productivity, and profit.
SuccessFactors knows that better business execution is the greatest path to success. The right systems, processes, and tools can align your workforce to your business strategy and improve productivity. When your people perform at their best, your company can increase growth, lower operating costs, and expand profit margins. With the cloud-based SuccessFactors BizX Suite for business execution, you can:
■Align your workforce with your strategy and get your people working on the right tasks
■Optimize performance across your organisation as you find the right people and make them great
■Accelerate business results with the insight you need to run your business better
Unlike talent management and human capital management vendors, SuccessFactors offers more than process efficiency and transactional cost savings. Both enterprise-class and small to midsize businesses can use our full suite of talent solutions, core HR, collaboration, and workforce analytics to improve productivity and engage, retain, and motivate employees. And as an SAP company with world-class technology under the hood, SuccessFactors is positioned to provide end-to-end integrated business solutions that address the biggest business challenges companies face.
SuccessFactors knows that better business execution can lead to results. A survey of 500 SuccessFactors customers by a Top 3 strategy consulting firm proved significant business execution improvements — what we call return on execution (ROX). With SuccessFactors products and solutions, you can:
■Improve strategic alignment: When you close the gap between strategy and execution, you can see a 5.5 per cent increase in time spent on strategic priorities.
■Increase efficiency and productivity: An optimised workforce can lead to a 14 per cent increase in project completion, a more than 5 per cent increase in productivity, and a 4.9 per cent increase in high performers — numbers that go straight to your bottom line.
