National HR Conference 2019

Welcome to CIPM

Institute of Personnel Management Sri Lanka (IPM) was founded in 1959 by a small group of professionals with the objective of developing and promoting the profession of personnel management. The Institute was subsequently incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1976, and its name was amended by Act No. 31 of 2018 as the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management (CIPM). CIPM SL is a professional body and is affiliated to the Asia Pacific Federation of Human Resource Management and World Federation of People Management Associations. The CIPM SL is the pioneering and most recognized professional body in the Island when it comes to trend-setting in the HRM profession.

By showing its unceasing strong commitment to uphold the highest standards of corporate governance, Chartered Institute of Personnel Management Sri Lanka won the Compliance Award under Small and Medium Sized Entities category for the 6th consecutive year in 2018.
The Grand finale of the 54th Annual Report Awards competition conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka was held at Shangri- La Hotel, Colombo on 04th December 2018. The primary focus of the competition is to encourage organizations to report and present their financial reports in a transparent, accurate and reader friendly manner, that best reflects the financial performance of an organization. This award is a clear testament to the fact that CIPM Sri Lanka adheres to the laid down Sri Lankan Accounting Standards, IFRS and other global standards that have been established for the purpose of ensuring best practices in financial reporting.
