Hello professionals,

I am planning to move overseas and have been trying for HR openings, but most often than not, I have been asked for certifications like SPHR/GPHR/PHR. I hold an MMS with specialisation in Human Resource Management and possess 8 years of corporate exposure. But it seems the above mentioned certifications carry value in overseas countries.

Can someone give more info on these ??

The Human Resource Certification institute is an affiliate of Society for Human Resource Management.

HRCI offers four certifications for HR professionals:

- PHR® (Professional in Human Resources)
- SPHR® (Senior Professional in Human Resources)
- GPHRTM (Global Professional in Human Resources)
- PHR-CA and SPHR-CA (PHR with state certification in California and SPHR with state certification in California)

Certification is a voluntary action by a professional group to establish a system to grant recognition to professionals who have met a stated level of training and work experience. Certified individuals are usually issued a certificate attesting that they have met the standards of the credentialing organization and are entitled to make the public aware of their credentialed status, usually through the use of initials (i.e., PHR or SPHR) after their names.

Certifications differ from certificate programs because certifications include an experience component. Certificate programs, on the other hand, award certificates once a course of study has been completed and do not require previous work experience.

All the Best !!
