HRPA has launched two new Continuing Professional Development planning tools for HR professionals: a CPD needs analysis tool synchronized with HRPA’s new professional competency framework, and a benchmarking tool for CHRPs and CHRLs that benchmarks their capabilities against other designated professionals, including by competency and by role.

Together the tools allow HR professionals to assess their individual needs for continuing professional development and to prioritize their investment to focus on what is truly important for them in their existing workplaces.

The CPD self-assessment tool measures skill levels according to the competency framework’s nine core and 15 enabling competencies. The assessment takes approximately 30-40 minutes, and feedback is provided in a PDF that outlines current skills levels and priorities for future development, as well as a list of recommended professional development approved by HRPA.

Located at www.hrpa.skillsgapanalysis.com, the tools are being made available free to all those practicing human resources.

Who should attend:

HR professionals at all levels
