MORE Consolidated List of SHRM Certification Announcement Posts with LINKS (Updated)

UPDATE 5/21: Added one more post and link below from Workforce.com not found last night when I originally wrote this post.

On the eve of my attempt to help our local CIC-SHRM members make sense of the news of last week at our bi-monthly meeting tomorrow, I did another search. Again, I will wait to comment fully about my own understanding and opinions until after I get a response from SHRM regarding a question I have that has yet to be addressed and I hear again from our regional MAC rep on a call I am scheduled to participate in on Thursday.

However, I do want to rescind and revise a comment I made in my earlier post. Last week I stated the following which is not entirely true: “The fact that the HRCI Executive Director did not receive advance notification leaves me a bit disappointed for a variety of reasons.” The HRCI Executive Director did know about SHRMs plans because she is part of the board where the topic was discussed. However, she did not know the communication would go out so fast and obviously did not have time to prepare current certificant’s as well as staff to handle questions.

I have separated the links to show those from SHRM, HRCI, and OTHERS separately.

In addition to doing a Google search on this topic you can go to a variety of LinkedIn groups where there is a great deal of conversation following these communications. The following lists of articles and links contain the most recent posts from this week first (under the appropriate header) then below them is a copy of the link from last week’s post starting with the words: “FROM LAST WEEK:”
