The area of human resource management is constantly changing. New laws, new technology, and new roles in their organization are examples of some of the most recent changes in the HR field. In order to stay on top of these types of changes, HR professionals need to constantly monitor trends both in their profession and the business environment.
HR professionals need to continually develop their skills and HR knowledge in an ever-changing industry.
Summary of requirements
- New laws. Hardly a day goes by without significant changes in either state or federal laws. Recent examples include leave and marijuana laws under state provisions, changes to the FLSA regulations, sexual harassment claims, and new OSHA rules. HR professionals must be aware of all of these.
- New technology. The advent of human resource information systems (HRIS) software is the major change in the administrative area of the HR profession. HRIS is a tool for managing HR data such as complying with regulatory issues and record keeping requirements.
- New role. HR professionals have broadened their scope from an advisory and administrative role to one that is now strongly entrenched in a strategic focus; however, day-to-day operational and administrative functions usually remain part of HR operations (unless these functions are outsourced).
- Expanding the knowledge base. To keep up with these changes, HR professionals must continue to expand their knowledge of HR trends, best practices, and applicable regulations. Expanding this professional knowledge benefits the organization and allows the HR professional to strengthen his or her career standing.
- To aid in this task, there are multiple sources and avenues to choose from, such as certification from the Human Resource Certificate Institute as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).
- The WorldatWork Society of Certified Professionals offers the following designations Certified Compensation Professional (CCP®), the Certified Benefits Professional (CBPTM) and the Global Remuneration Professional (GRP®).
- The Society for Human Resource Management also offers certifications. The SHRM-CP is for HR professionals who implement policies and strategies, serve as point of contact for staff and stakeholders, deliver HR services, and perform operational HR functions. The SHRM-SCP is for HR professionals involved in more strategic, analytical efforts.
- There are also numerous seminars and professional development courses available through local colleges and technical schools.
