|Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP)||Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL)||Certified Human Resources Executive (CHRE)|
The Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) is the professional level designation. There have been major changes in what is expected of human resources professionals. For example, they must understand their organizations better and operate at a more strategic level, provide a higher level of thinking, be more solution providers and less process administrators. HR professionals at the CHRL level can be found in either specialist or generalist positions. Individuals at this level have responsibilities such as, but not limited to, managing projects, programs, and initiatives; implementing plans passed down by senior management; and delegating tasks to entry-level staff. In professional matters, individuals at this level can act independently. Individuals at the CHRL level will often have position titles such as Director of HR, Human Resources Manager, Human Resources Generalist, and Human Resources Specialist. Completion of the CHRL requirements confers the right to use the title Certified Human Resources Leader and the right to use the initials CHRL after your name.
