To help you navigate your way toward a more rewarding HR career, SHRM has developed several tools to guide your HR professional development. After you explore the SHRM Competency Model, start using these tools to help you assess your proficiency, identify development activities and plan how you'll build your proficiency so you can continuously develop and advance your HR career.
The Competency Self-Assessment (CSA) helps you identify your HR knowledge and behavioral competency strengths and development needs. Click "Get Started" below to access the CSA and learn more about the tool.
Once you've taken the assessment, click the "Find Development Activities" button at the bottom of your report for tailored activity recommendations to build your proficiencies.
If you are a SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certified member, you will receive one professional development credit (PDC) per year for each calendar year you complete the CSA.
the Development Activity Wizard (DAW) to get professional development recommendations
based on your learning preferences or CSA results. Whether it’s a seminar, a webcast, a book or
an article, activities provided in the DAW are based on SHRM research with HR
professionals worldwide, identifying the most effective programs and resources for
developing and strengthening your HR knowledge and competencies.

You can also browse the full Development Activity Database to view the complete list of all available SHRM, preferred provider, and education partner activities and to decide for yourself.

Once you’ve taken the CSA, keep your professional development moving with a Competency Development Plan (CDP). The CDP establishes a structure for you to target, prioritize and complete the identified activities; document additional needed support; and set your metrics of success. You’ll be on your way!
