Expert Guidance Leads to Success!

SHRM Certifications cover four knowledge areas of People, Organization, Workplace and Strategy including eight behavioral competencies of Leadership and Navigation, Ethical Practice, Business Acumen, Relationship Management, Consultation, Critical Evaluation, Global and Cultural Effectiveness, and Communication.

Based on a Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK™), these certifications are designed to elevate the HR profession around the world. They test the HR professional’s competency - the ability to put that knowledge to work through critical thinking and application - and demonstrate that the HR professional is a technical expert and has mastered the application of HR technical and behavioral competencies, through practice and experience, to drive business results.
