The field of human resources is certainly growing in importance; today’s businesses are more aware than ever that talent attraction and retention is a key driver that impacts on strategy and profits. This makes certification in human resources (HR) a vital asset to a career in this field, something that Morgan has recognized since it began its partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in 2005. This professional human resources organization is based in the U.S. but represents the industry globally with chapters across the world. It is not only the largest organization of its kind, it also has powerful impact, guiding the human resources profession forward through its certification, member network, research, and lobbying activities.
With the aim of addressing the real needs of the modern-day HR industry SHRM launched two new designations which begin their first exam testing in 2015. Although new, the SHRM-CP (SHRM-Certified Professional) and the SHRM-SCP (SHRM-Senior Certified Professional) are the result of years of research conducted by SHRM into what the industry really needs and, as with its previous designations, are designed to be the best in class of their kind. Both certifications are based on the SHRM Competency Model, which sets out the behavior and skills that HR professionals need to grow and succeed in their careers. It’s a model that was validated by more than 35,000 HR professionals around the world, and which can be applied to all levels of HR professionals and to all organizations, regardless of size or geography. Ultimately it’s a new global standard and one that is recognized around the world thanks to SHRM’s decades of reputation as the leading HR authority.
Like SHRM, Morgan believes in offering professionals the most relevant certification programs to improve their careers. That’s why Morgan selected the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP and is focusing on them for its HR learning programs, making sure that candidates receive the most up-to-date instantly applicable expertise that is internationally recognized. And that’s also why Morgan and SHRM’s partnership makes perfect sense. It gives today’s professionals and businesses exactly what they need.
