I am a dad. It has to be the greatest accomplishment I’ve ever had, or will ever have. My kids are on the verge of being adults now so they are doing more and more on their own. What I’m finding is how easy it is to take a small amount of information and blow it out of proportion if you are missing context. I’m seeing this both from them spreading their wings and having to make bigger life decisions as well as my wife and I letting them fly more. We don’t always have context around what their decisions are, and it’s hard not to want to step in and “fix” things.

It seems as if we learn of a new scientific or technological breakthrough every day—something that allows us to do more, faster and with greater ease. But for HR professionals, each innovation warrants tough questions: What does it mean for my company and the people whose jobs depend on the legacy processes? And what does it mean for our profession?
After more than 1,100 responses from our members, I am enthusiastic to announce that we have a name for the new SHRM certification. There will be two levels to the new certification:
Nancy Newell, SPHR, HR Executive, and a certified instructor, discusses the evolution of the HR profession and her belief that the competency-based examination is critical to the continued development of the HR profession.
Laurie McIntosh, SPHR, Director of Member Engagement at SHRM, discusses the unprecedented level of research that went into the three-year process to develop the SHRM HR Competency Model.
Sharlyn Lauby, SPHR, President of the ITM Group, discusses how the competency-based certification will create a competitive advantage for her organization and all HR professionals who earn the credential.
Dr. Alex Alonso, PHD, SPHR, and Vice President of Research for SHRM discusses how the SHRM is establishing the firewall between the Certification examination and the certification preparation materials.
Dr. Alex Alonso, PHD, SPHR, and Vice President of Research for SHRM discusses how the competency-based credentialing is the standard for a wide range of professions and the right direction for the HR Profession.
