What’s Next On Your Career Path? Is it time to consider going global with a GPHR?
The global economy is increasing the demand for HR professionals with global perspective.  Earning your Global Professional of Human Resources certification tells the world you’re ready to lead projects and people in exciting new areas.  It also provides valuable insight into cultural distinctions that can affect HR problems, policies and strategy.  If you have global responsibilities, consider GPHR certification.

SHRM’s Workplace Trends reports that the growing number of HR professionals working for companies with a large international presence will focus increasingly on global human capital issues, e.g., integration of different cultures, management of a global workforce, offshoring, and regional and international legislation.
