EmployeeScreenIQ Approved for SHRM Preferred Provider Network
August 27, 2015
As you may know, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) launched their SHRM Certification program for HR professionals in May, 2014.
Since that time, they have developed a credentialing program which makes recipients recognized experts and leaders in the HR field. In order to qualify for, and maintain certification recipients must accumulate SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDC’s) which are awarded for continuing education activities.
I’m excited to share that EmployeeScreenIQ has been approved by SHRM to join its Preferred Provider Network. This will allow us to award SHRM PDCs for the programs that we offer relating to the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK), including webinars, speaking engagements, podcast, e-learning and other programs. The SHRM BoCK contains the knowledge and behaviors on which the new SHRM certifications are based.
With all of the litigation and legislation surrounding employers’ use of employment background checks, it is more important than ever for human resources professionals to stay ahead of the curve and we look forward to providing quality educational opportunities to support the recertification efforts of the HR community who obtain their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP Certifications.
SHRM established the SHRM Preferred Provider Program to give organizations that offer education, training and/or other HR-related Competency and Knowledge programming the opportunity to award PDCs, without pre-approval by SHRM, during a 2-year period. Companies who earn SHRM Preferred Provider status must meet a number of stringent qualifications, which ensure that sound learning principles are incorporated into the program. Being identified as a SHRM Preferred Provider eliminates the guesswork for credential holders, who know that the programs qualify for re-certification credits.
