CPHR Canada - along with member associations - has been working to build credibility & transferability for the CPHR designation globally over the last year. We wanted to share with you some of the great strides that have been made!
Additionally, CPHR Canada has signed Memorandums of Understanding with fellow HR associations across the globe including the Society for Human Resource Management (USA), Australian Human Resources Institute, Hong Kong Institute of Human Resources Management, The Bangladesh Human Resources Management Association, and the Singapore Human Resources Management Institute. These partnerships offer an opportunity to partner on many HR initiatives to affect policy and standards on the world stage including designation transferability. This latter part is something that CPHR Canada is working very hard towards and while the Hong Kong Institute has already accepted designation transferability, CPHR Canada is seeking to firm up the same with our other MOU partners. Stay tuned for more on this subject.
Mutual recognition and designation transferability allows designation holders in one country the opportunity to receive designated status in the partnership country. Employees of international companies or those engaging in cross-border business may find it beneficial to hold membership in multiple HR organizations and as a result have the option of holding more than one designation simultaneously. As noted more information will be passed on as it is firmed up by CPHR Canada.
