SHRM New Certification Program

Many of you may have received or heard about the recent announcement from SHRM that they will begin offering a new competency-based certification for human resource professionals.  This will be a completely separate certification from the PHR/SPHR certifications that many of you in our Membership currently have.  While there are still many unanswered questions, we wanted to share the most current available information.  We will continue to update you as we learn more in the coming months. Click here for more details.  Thank you to Janell Harding, Certification Director of INSHRM, for putting this information together for us!!

There was an article on Human Resource Executive Online released this week that gives a little background behind the new SHRM Certification Program from the former SHRM CEO.  Click here to view the article.
