Julian Hall Join us with Prof Jill Rubery, Prof Damian Grimshaw, Prof Tony Dundon and Dr Gail Hebson from the University of Manchester and Ali House, Heather Bond and Jonny Gifford from the CIPD to reflect on his work and contributions and to learn about the new CIPD Marchington Research Grant. We are honored to join Manchester Industrial Relations Society (MIRS) and the Work and Equalities Institute at the University of Manchester to remember and reflect on the work and contributions of Prof Mick Marchington, who sadly passed away on 24 February 2021, aged 71. Mick was an esteemed academic in HR and employment relations and a longstanding friend and source of inspiration, expertise and support for many at the CIPD. Over many years, he helped develop the CIPD’s professional standards, qualifications and academic membership and was a lead examiner and quality panel chair accrediting CIPD centres. Mick's outstanding contributions as both Chief Examiner (1994-2002) and Chief Moderator for Standards (2002-2006) at the CIPD led to him being made a Chartered Companion in 2003. He strived for over thirty years to establish and maintain standards of excellence in the HR profession, taking on major tasks of both curriculum development and monitoring of standards.
