A low pass rate on exams and high cost for study materials have HR practitioners seeking to earn their credentials questioning the blurry relationship between the Society for Human Resource Management and Human Resource Certification Institute.

Join Workforce Management senior writer Rita Pyrillis to discuss the value of HR credentials, what it takes to pass an exam from the HRCI, and the organization’s confusing relationship with SHRM.

With a pass rate of 48 percent for the Senior Professional in Human Resources certificate, the most prominent HR credentialing organization has come under increasing criticism for its rigorous exams. Others have taken SHRM to task for the way it markets its certification study kit and for its failure to explain the nature of its relationship with the HRCI. Share your thoughts on these issues in a one-hour live conversation.
