Did you see this last week by new SHRM CEO Johnny Taylor?
“Require certification,” Taylor said. “SHRM certification is a validation that the professional doing the job has the competency to do it. Treat HR like a profession. Don’t just prefer—require!”
So, there will be a reaction from the HR community on this for sure! My guess is it will be mostly negative by those who aren’t certified, and mostly positive by the small percentage, overall, of HR professionals who do have a certification.
Here’s my take – I 100% agree with Johnny!
In fact, I love Johnny even more
