JHRS Congratulates Japan's First Batch Of HRMPs/HRBPs
The Japan HR Society (JHRS) salutes its JHRS members for their achievement in gaining credentials as HR Management Professional® (HRMP) or HR Business Professional® (HRBP)
Tokyo (I-Newswire) September 10, 2012 - The Japan HR Society (JHRS,www.jhrs.org) is pleased to announce the initial results of the Japan round of a new global credentialing/certification system developed and piloted by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI, www.hrci.org)-an internationally recognized certifying organization for the human resource profession. The one-day pilot exam was held May 11 in nearly 50 countries at 66 test locations worldwide, including Japan.
JHRS extends its congratulations to the following JHRS members for their achievement in becoming part of Japan's historic first batch of HR Management Professional® (HRMP) and HR Business Professional® (HRBP)-certified HR professionals:
HR Management Professional® (HRMP) Track
• Jun Kabigting, MBA, MS, HRMP
• Yoshiharu Matsui, HRMP
• Yukihiro Murakami, HRMP
HR Business Professional® (HRBP) Track
• Andrew Olea, GMS, HRBP
• Tanya Temchenko, HRBP
The new HRMPs/HRBPs will be publicly honored at JHRS' annual Shin Nen Kai (New Year) Party in January, 2013 in Tokyo.
The exam tested the examinees' mastery of the professional and management level core HR knowledge and skills. Prior to being admitted to take the exam, applicants also need to fulfill a number of qualifying requirements such as having a minimum number of years as an HR practitioner.
As a benefit in passing the exam, successful examinees can use the HRMP/HRBP designations in their personal and professional branding (e.g., CVs, business cards, social profiles, etc.) and become part of a new breed and elite group of certified HR professionals in the world. HRMPs/HRBPs need to earn re-certifying points within 3 years in order to maintain these credentials and as part of the continuing education ethos of the certification process.
However, according to JHRS Chief Community Officer Jun Kabigting, MBA/MS/HRMP, the real benefit of going through the certification process is not only the ability to use the HRMP or HRBP title but more importantly, the "learning process" that one goes through while preparing for the exam. By diligently going through the various learning materials as part of this HR certification preparation process, an HR professional will naturally learn more about advanced and cutting-edge HR thoughts, philosophies, processes, and systems.
Moreover, the exam also focused on testing a person's practical HR experience and knowledge and not just theories. Tanya Temchenko, HRBP, commented, "I found that the exam actually tested practical HR business partnering capabilities rather than on one's preparedness with study materials alone. I believe that my experience as an HR practitioner is what helped me passed the test."
"For me, whether or not I passed the exam," Kabigting says, "the effort of going through this process is well worth it! I highly encourage other HR professionals to 'get noticed' and indeed, to 'commit to higher standards' for themselves and the HR profession."
HRCI plans to issue an official announcement for additional information about this new global HR credentials in due time.
