I am not a human resources professional, nor do I play one on TV — or in a newspaper, for that matter. So when it comes to the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation, my perspective falls more as an “outsider” point of view — though certainly more than a decade of covering the profession as a journalist gives me a bit of HR street cred.

Without doubt, one statement I can make about the designation is HR professionals are passionate about it. Mention the CHRP in HR company and, more likely than not, you’ll get an earful ranging from how great and unappreciated it is to how it’s an irrelevant waste of time — with more people in the former rather than the latter camp.
