    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.


    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.
