    A Complimentary Webinar will be delivered by Dr. Constantine 'Dino' Kiritsis on the 7th of September 2019 (Saturday) 11 am- 12 pm Islamabad GMT +5.00. A Global Trend to Real Time Career Development Since the late parts of the 20th century executives around the world and professionals have been making a shift towards professional qualifications. There are numerous reasons justifying this 'shift': the practical knowledge offered by these programs, their global character, the fact that they certify competency and staying employable through CPDs, and their continuous renewal of their syllabus in order to respond to the needs of corporations and each profession. This is a growing fact, given that the University degree does not necessarily provide differentiation (the term academic inflation) and associations seem to be taking the lead when it comes to employee requirement, advancement and mobility (i.e. CFA, CIA, ACCA, SHRM etc.). Can professional qualifications differentiate professionals and provide the competitive advantage to organizations that embrace them? In an era of academic inflation, it is important to have a way to guarantee competence professionalism and employability skills. Organizations and professionals must adapt fast to change, be practical, and update constantly. Certifications by well known professional bodies can help. Are you certified in your area of expertise? Does your organization have a policy supporting certification training? Are you up-to-date in your area? If you are interested in your own professional development and the development of your people, you need to attend this session. This webinar contains 1 PDC towards SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP Recertification Register for free here .
