INTRODUCING SHRM CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL (SHRM-CP™)
AND SHRM SENIOR CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL (SHRM-SCP™)
Business leadership has changed over recent decades. We now live and work in a global economy, in which geographic borders are virtually non-existent, and innovation, agility and strategy are critical success factors. The HR profession operates at the core of this global economy, ensuring the alignment of organizational strategy with a high-performing workforce. The new SHRM credentials, SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP), address these new roles.
As the leading advocate for HR professionals worldwide, providing HR research and education, SHRM launched an unparalleled study to define not only the knowledge, but also the competencies required of today’s HR leaders. The result of this rigorous research was the SHRM Competency Model which forms an important foundation for the new SHRM Certification.
NEXT-GENERATION HR CERTIFICATION – SHRM-CP & SHRM-SCP AVAILABLE IN 2015
The new SHRM Certification recognizes that HR professionals are at the core of leading organizational success:
- It is built on one singular SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge™ (SHRM BoCK™) designed to elevate the HR profession around the world.
- It tests the HR professional’s competency—the ability to put that knowledge to work through critical thinking and application.
- It demonstrates 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.

The 2014 SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition in Orlando kicked off on Saturday, June 21st with thousands of HR Professionals in attendance. Conference participants enjoyed several national keynote speakers including Robin Roberts, Tom Friedman, David Novak and Laura Bush. Additionally, there were over 250 speakers for the concurrent sessions intended for a variety of career levels.
Among the speakers were two of our very own – GBRSHRM members and Past-Presidents, Sandy Michelet and Robin Schooling. Sandy rocked the house in the first concurrent session of the conference where she discussed how thinking like a musician can build a better team and organization. Robin Schooling spoke on the SHRM Smart Stage on the topic, “Be Bold: HR as an Internal Consultant.” We are proud and honored as a Chapter that two of our own members were selected to speak at such an amazing conference.
Next year’s SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition will be held in Las Vegas, NV from June 28, 2015 through July 1, 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This event for HR Professionals is one that you will not want to miss!
