Becoming a Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) means you're recognized on a national level within your field. It means having employers, colleagues and clients turn to you for strategic advice and guidance. CPHRMB.CA According to the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce's 2019 Business Outlook Survey, six out of ten respondents reported they have heard of the Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation. Awareness of the CPHR designation increased from 43% in 2018 to 62% in 2019, with 76% awareness in Winnipeg. Also, 58% of respondents reported that the CPHR designation would be valuable to their organization, which is an increase of 12 points from 2018. As more organizations begin to look for CPHR accredited professionals in the workplace, it is more important than ever to enhance the standards of the designation. Effective January 2021, CPHR Canada will be adding a new educational requirement that must be completed before writing the National Knowledge Exam (NKE). This will help to set the bar for academic comprehension and establish a standard for educational requirements. Because there is only one more year before the educational requirement comes into effect, CPHR Manitoba is rolling out an outreach campaign to students, potential and current members of CPHR Manitoba to show how the CPHR designation can help them enhance their HR careers. This will be the primary role of the Membership Engagement Coordinator, a new position at the organization. They will also be responsible for fostering good relations by providing proactive, knowledgeable and timely customer service. The CPHR designation represents a commitment to a national standard of excellence and sets a benchmark for the practice of effective Human Resources. It emphasizes the strategic role of HR management in business and plays an important role in securing HR's position as an equal business partner at the executive table. This past year, CPHR Manitoba recorded their highest number of members and CPHR candidates in the history of the organization. Awareness of CPHR Manitoba has grown steadily over the past number of years due in large part to strategic partnerships with post-secondary institutions and the business community. Many organizations recognize HR as a vital and strategic leadership function and see value in having designated professionals on staff.
