Earn Professional Development Credits for Survey Participation


If you have a current HR certification, you may be eligible to receive professional development recertification credit for completing a SHRM Research survey. SHRM Members are randomly selected to participate in SHRM surveys and typically receive several survey invitations per year.

For SHRM Certification (SHRM-CP, SHRM-SCP), you will receive 1 professional development recertification credit (PDC) per year for completing a SHRM Research survey; this means that over the three-year recertification period, you can earn 3 PDCs by completing 3 surveys (1 per year). For more information about SHRM certification and recertification, please visit shrm.org/certification.

For HRCI Certification (PHR, SPHR, GPHR, PHR-CA, SPHR-CA, HRMP or HRBP), please refer to the HRCI recertification handbook at http://www.hrci.org/recertification/recertification-resources for the latest information about earning recertification credits for participating in a HR-related survey.
