I have recently started my CIPD level 5 for HRM, and I am currently learning about the HR profession map as part of the module.Having had no prior knowledge of the profession map prior to my studies I thought it was quite difficult to get your head around (particularly the different bands and what you should know for each area). I did start to question whether I was fulfilling my duties in my current role. That said now I have done more reading I feel a lot more comfortable with it and I have started to put together a development plan to fill any gaps in my knowledge.This process got me thinking hence the post.I wondered how often do you use and relate to the CIPD map?How has the CIPD map helped you/ and your organisation?I recently completed an assessment on the CIPD's website to see were I fit. I clicked most of the professional areas as well as all the behaviours. The report was quite complex.I wondered do you prefer completing such assessments covering all areas and behaviours or do you prefer to select a couple of behaviours and professional areas so you can really concentrate on your development needs?I look forward to hearing people's responses.
