People Management (PM) is the UK's biggest human resources publication with a circulation of 132,000. It is the official magazine of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), and is published by Personnel Publications Limited.
In 1996, it became the first magazine in the UK to refuse “ageist” recruitment advertisements, as the start of a campaign against age discrimination, which saw PM draw up a charter that was eventually signed by 65 recruitment communications and marketing businesses..
In addition to age discrimination, the magazine has worked to raise awareness of the employment issues facing employees with mental illness, ex-offenders, dyslexic people, women, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and gay, lesbian and bisexual workers. It has also highlighted best practice in managing and supporting employees with cancer. In 2006 they ran a successful campaign to draw attention to the issue of pregnancy at work, for which they joined forces with baby charity Tommy's.
The sister magazine of People Management is Coaching at Work.
