Our membership package benefits and services are designed to equip HR professionals with the information and practical tools they need to strategically influence and make a positive impact in the workplace.

IPM offers Individual and Corporate Membership.
Corporate membership allows multiple memberships to be taken out within the same organisation at a discounted rate. And these members can change representative members at their convenience if employees leave or join the organisation and they are eligible to apply for professional designation.


People dynamics

Members receive a hard copy as well as access to the electronic version of People Dynamics, the institute's official quarterly magazine. People Dynamics provides a forum for debate and discussion on all issues affecting people managers in South Africa, the African continent and beyond.

Online Journals

As part of the added benefits of being a member, members have access to two leading academic journals, the:

  1. South African Journal of Human Resource Management.
  2. South African Journal of Industrial Psychology. 

These two journals are searchable online and bring you high quality research content, all included in your membership fee.

IPM Website

The IPM website contains information and resources that will include templates, checklists, policies and how to guides.

IPM Mentoring Programme

As part of our vision to support and build the HR profession today and tomorrow, we have created an IPM Mentoring & Coaching Programme, where seasoned professionals will assist and mentor young practitioners and university students who aspire to break into the HR industry or need guidance in shaping the HR career.
Our student chapters and workshops also assist and expose young practitioners and students to career prospects that may lead to career-long, rewarding relationships.

Member discounts

Active individual members will be eligible to discount for partner programmes as well as IPM-hosted events, including the IPM Annual Convention which attracts local and international speakers, delegates and exhibitors. Corporate Members benefit from a discounted rate for stand space at the exhibition.
