Human Resources Certification Preparation

Are you ready to advance?  There is still time to make this year THE year for you to obtain your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification and prove to your employer, your colleagues and yourself that you’re ready for advancement. 

The HR profession is no longer just about what you know, but rather how you effectively implement that knowledge in the workplace each and every day.  Employers are looking for HR practitioners who can apply their knowledge on the job to be leaders and drive organizational success.

Throughout the People, Organization, and Workplace modules, brief scenarios describe how the 8 Behavioral Competencies are applied—Leadership and Navigation, Ethical Practice, Business Acumen, Relationship Management, Consultation, Critical Evaluation, Global and Cultural Effectiveness, and, of course, Communication—to aid you in performing effectively in the workplace.
