The Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation should measure and reflect more than the minimum of HR competence, according to a new survey by the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) of Ontario and

Canadian HR Reporter.

The survey, second in a series, asked more than 1,100 HR professionals at which level of competence the designation should be aimed. The majority of respondents (51 per cent) say the CHRP should be aimed “somewhat above” the minimum level of competence required of an HR professional, while 33.4 per cent say it should be aimed “well above” the minimum.
