XLRI, NHRD and CII Partner for HR accreditation

So finally the talent shortage and lack of skilled HR professionals is having some impact on Industry.

ET reports that “In a move to professionalise and give accreditation to human resource (HR) professionals, the National Human Resource Development network (NHRD) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the CII and the XLRI, Jamshedpur, for an accreditation process. This will be launched in a month’s time, P Dwarkanath, director, Glaxo SmithKline (GSK) and president, NHRD, said.

I had posted earlier about the HR talent shortage which exits in the country today.

Today, HR managers are in great demand, with an estimated 5,00,000 required across industries . But there exists a shortage to the tune of 40%,” Father NCasimir Raj, SJ, director of XLRI,. “This apart, the attrition rate is high as people are not sure what areas they can excel in. The training has been designed to check these trends,” he added.

XLRI has been taking the lead in partnering with Industry and even State Govt. to train and set standards in developing competencies for HR roles.
