Kogan Page and the CIPD launch new publishing partnership
Kogan Page and the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, have formed a new book publishing partnership beginning on 1st April 2017.
The CIPD awarded the contract to Kogan Page following a competitive tender. Kogan Page will be responsible for all aspects of the CIPD’s academic and professional book publishing, from the sales and distribution of its existing 70 titles, to acquiring new books that support CIPD qualifications as well as general practitioner resources.
Kogan Page Managing Director Helen Kogan commented: “This is a fantastic endorsement for the work Kogan Page has carried out over the last few years in developing its brand and engagement with professional associations. We are committed to providing CIPD members and the wider HR and L&D community with best-in-class academic and practitioner content and look forward to working with the CIPD to develop further their current textbook and practitioner resources. It’s a great way to start our 50th anniversary year in independent publishing.”
Commenting on the new relationship, Gill White Commercial & Capability Director for the CIPD said: “We are delighted to be working with Kogan Page to extend and enhance our publishing offering to members. The world of work is changing faster than ever before so it’s crucial that HR and learning and development professionals can access a range of products to support their needs. In addition to our existing catalogue, our members will now have easier access to relevant e-books and the wider Kogan Page catalogue. We look forward to working with the team at Kogan Page to strengthen our publishing activities further in order to support our membership and the wider HR and L&D community.”
The CIPD contract follows closely on the heels of the launch of a new Kogan Page co-publishing contract with the Chartered Banker Institute. The company co-publishes with other associations such as the Market Research Society, the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
