          CPHR Designation



          Certified Practitioner in Human Resources are uniquely qualified to achieve business goals. With proven expertise across key business metrics, every CPHR has the knowledge and the experience to address the factors that underpin the degree of immediate and long-term success.


          CPHRs advance and expand their professional knowledge and practice across these competency areas throughout their careers, offering you the most current, evidence-based practices and technologies.


          These are the key areas that, if left under-attended, become a perpetual struggle. But well-attended, become the platform upon which individuals, teams, and organizations achieve their successes.

          CPHR undertook a two-phased process for brand development. First, we defined our purpose statement and our forecast for the future, which articulated what we were working toward. Once we clearly defined who we are, what we stand for and where we are going, we developed a brand that reflected these truths. In this way, we are ensuring that the image, the tone and the approach we are taking on behalf of our members is consistent with our values and our high, but attainable, standards.


          CPHR proudly and thoughtfully represents the HR profession on the international stage. We are working with our counterparts to identify issues of common concern, share best practices and strengthen the HR profession. The CPHR designation is recognized in the United Kingdom and almost every country around the world through more than 80 accredited member institutions.


          CPHR's ‘Practitioner Code of Ethics and Conduct’ expresses the commitment that CPHR Associations worldwide make to the ethical delivery of human resources practice by their members.
