SHRM Certification Reaches a Major Milestone



The 100,000th SHRM certification has been awarded, making SHRM's credentialing program the fastest-growing in the HR field. "It's exciting to see more and more HR professionals making the commitment to become SHRM-certified," said Henry G. "Hank" Jackson, SHRM's president and CEO. "We are pleased by the widespread positive response, and we celebrate exceeding 100,000 certificants."


As of publication of this article, more than 101,550 individuals in 105 countries have earned the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP designations, which have become HR's premier professional certifications. More than 53,000 HR job postings last year listed a preference for applicants with SHRM credentials.


"This milestone is an achievement, not only for SHRM certification, but for the HR profession," said Wayne


Cascio, Ph.D., chair of the SHRM Certification Commission, and distinguished university professor and Robert H. Reynolds chair in global leadership at the University of Colorado Denver School of Business. "It is a testament to SHRM's ability to offer an accredited credential program in two years, as well as to HR professionals who have proven their high level of knowledge and skills."


SHRM certification launched in January 2015 after years of research to define the behavioral competencies and knowledge relevant to today's global HR professional. With business executives viewing competency in people management as critical to the success of their organizations and HR departments, SHRM continues to refine the competencies. An update of the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge was released late last year. The SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP are accredited by the Buros Center for Testing, the global leader in evaluating examinations. A mobile app and other tools help make the recertification process simple and efficient for certificants, who can take advantage of more than 40,000 educational programs and a personalized education program. 


StudySmart is the authorized partner of SHRM for Greece & Cyprus. Dr. Constantine Kiritsis said: "In Greece we offer the SHRM certification and we have achieved 83% success rate. The SHRM professional qualification improves the skills and performance of HR professionals which results to high quality services delivered by them to both companies and clients. We are really proud to be associated with SHRM and offer the SHRM certification programme in Greece and Cyprus".

    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 .
