The PHR demonstrates your mastery of the technical and operational aspects of HR management, including U.S. laws and regulations. The PHR is for the HR professional who has experience with program implementation, has a tactical/logistical orientation, is accountable to another HR professional within the organization, and has responsibilities that focus on the HR department rather than the whole organization.

  • Have at least two years of experience in a professional- level HR position + a bachelor’s degree.

Organizations seek out SPHR professionals for their proven accountability for HR department goals, for depth of knowledge in all HR disciplines, and for understanding business issues beyond the HR function.
