      Exploring the London Mayor's Good Work Standard

      The London Mayor's Good Work Standard, developed in partnership with CIPD, brings together good employment practice with resources and guidance written by CIPD experts. Tested with CIPD members from the CIPD London region, the framework aims to support employers of all sizes across the city to improve their people management practices and create good work for all. Join us at the London City Hall in an exploration of what Good Work is, the standard and good people practices that will support organisations across London to foster fair, healthy, diverse and skilful workplaces. The Good Work Standard is a framework developed by the Mayor of London in partnership with the CIPD, combining experts in the world of work with an in-depth knowledge of London. The Standard’s criteria follow four guiding principles: 1. Fair pay and contracts2. Workplace well-being3. Skills and progression4. Diversity and recruitment A central theme of the Good Work Standard is people and how to effectively manage them.
