Emma Louden, HR Manager at accountants Chiene + Tait, has been appointed to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Mid Scotland Branch committee focusing on health and wellbeing, plus employee engagement in the workplace.

Commenting on the new role, Emma said: “I’m really enthused about getting involved in this role which aims to build on the increasing investment by businesses and organisations into their employees’ mental and physical health. While I have a lot of positive input to share through the work we’ve done within Chiene + Tait, I am also extremely keen to learn about new and innovative ideas from fellow CIPD members.”
Andrew Latto, Chairman of the Mid Scotland CIPD Branch comments: “We are delighted to be harnessing Emma’s extensive skills to the benefit of fellow HR professionals and the staff they support across Scotland. Working together, our branches are a formidable force for change and are revolutionising the professional environment.”
