HRCI vs. SHRM Certifications
HR certification benefits HR professionals and employers. It can open doors for professional advancement, harmonize standards, and improve HR professionals’ skills and competencies. In 2015, HR professionals have a choice to obtain HR Certification from two certifying bodies:
Professional in Human Resources (PHR®) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR®) through the HR Certification Institute (HRCI)
Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) or SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) through SHRM
Join us to learn the differences between the certifications, how to choose a certification to advance your career, and what you should do if you already are certified by HRCI. Recertification credits for HRCI and SHRM will be discussed.
