GBR SHRM Receives 2016 SHRM Learning System Champion Award

    January 6, 2017

    GBR SHRM is pleased to announce that we are recognized as a 2016 SHRM Learning System® Champion.  This award comes with various forms of recognition.  It has been an exciting year and we are very happy with the momentum the SHRM certifications have gained in our chapter.  Our SHRM certified members are amongst the 92,000+ HR Professionals that are SHRM certified (53,000 SHRM-CP® professionals and 39,000 SHRM-SCP® professionals).

    You may be wondering exactly what does it mean to be a SHRM Learning System Champion?  Well let me tell you!  The competency-based SHRM-CP® and SHRM-SCP® credentials are the new global standard in HR certification. These credentials are among the first HR certifications focused on teaching and testing the practical, real-life information HR professionals need to advance their organizations, and excel in their careers today, including knowledge, skills, and behavioral competencies.

    The SHRM Learning System® Champion status is a recognition of GBR SHRM's hard work to elevate the HR profession through professional development and HR knowledge among members, gained from SHRM certification. SHRM created this prestigious distinction in support of its premier educational product. This status also helps to promote the HR profession at the local level by using the SHRM Learning System® for SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP. 

    GBR SHRM would like to thank and congratulate our Certification Director, Melinda Stallings, on her hard work and dedication to the SHRM Learning System®.   We couldn't have accomplished this recognition without your support and the efforts of our members that took the steps necessary to obtain their SHRM-CP® or SHRM-SCP® credentials.  Great job by all!
