HRPA ACHIEVES NCCA ACCREDITATION FOR CHRP PROGRAM
TORONTO — The Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) has achieved accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). The NCCA Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs cover governance of assessment instruments, standard setting, recertification and documentation. HRPA sought the accreditation to ensure its Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) certification program met the highest of standards, it said, and Ontario is the only province to have such accreditation. NCCA accreditation will enhance the confidence employers, clients, employees and the public have in the CHRP designation granted in Ontario, said HRPA.
SURVEY TO TAKE CLOSER LOOK AT INCIVILITY
TORONTO — Incivility in the workplace can lead to lower engagement, poor morale and declining productivity — along with financial costs. To better understand the challenge of incivility, Canadian HR Reporter is conducting a 12-question survey to gauge how many complaints of incivility — defined as “seemingly inconsequential, rude or disrespectful words or actions, where it’s unclear that the person has intent to harm” — employers are receiving. We also want to find out how HR professionals handle complaints and what steps have been taken to address incivility in the workplace. To take the survey, please visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/NWGZCCZ. Results will be published in an upcoming issue of Canadian HR Reporter.
