Professional Development

The chapter encourages members in preparing for the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification examination offered by the Human Resource Certification Institute. We have partnered with The Human Equation (aka HRTutor.com), a leading provider of web-based training to the HR marketplace to help our members develop their HR knowledge as well as earning up to 31.5 credits that are HRCI approved for PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification. Please visit our HR Resources page for more information.

Members interested in developing themselves within the South Central Indiana Human Resource community may actively contribute to the profession by participating in a wide variety of chapter initiatives. Many of those opportunities may involve participating in chapter programs and events or serving as a member of the SCIHRA board of directors.

Student Chapter

SCIHRA believes that the Human Resource leaders of the future can benefit from the leaders of today. In support of that belief, the chapter strongly supports South Central Indiana area SHRM student chapters.

Job Services

SCIHRA recognizes and supports Human Resource professionals in their career development initiatives. This chapter has a commitment to announcing available Human Resource positions to our chapter members whenever possible. This is a service intended to connect our members with employment opportunities at all levels in the HR profession.
