NHRD, CII and XLRI to accredit HR professionals
This news is quite interesting.
“We want to develop competencies in the HR professional, so we have tied up with the CII and XLRI, who will design and develop the competency. We are developing a model where accreditation like a chartered accountant’s could be given to an HR professional,” Mr Dwarkanath remarked. Mr Dwarkanath said that although details are to be worked out, there will be a grading of HR practitioners, from expert, professional, operational, etc. He added they still have to work out relating higher grades to monetary or other benefits. “This is a blue print and we need to work out benefits for the employer and the employee,”
As I have stressed before, getting into a HR career in India has never been easier. There is such a shortage of HR professionals that an entry is almost guaranteed in HR Operations and Recruitment to a graduate who has basic competencies.
But when it comes to growth often a Psychology/Industrial Psychology/OB/HR certification becomes a necessity, and that is where such accreditions will become useful.
I hope they adapt the HR certifications which have been worked on in the US for this and not really reinvent the wheel !
