THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND…

ONLY 15 of the 60 credits a SPHR must fall in the SBM
domain.

•Holders of multiple designations only have to earn 60
total recertification credit hours, but may have more
specified credit hour requirements. (Example: someone
with an SPHR and a GPHR must earn 15 hours in SBM
and 30 hours in International, leaving only 15 general
credit hours available)

•If an activity you have submitted doesn’t qualify for SBM
credit, it may still earn general recertification credit hours.

RECERTIFIED.



















AND MOST IMPORTANTLY…
•Having the SPHR distinction allows you to
demonstrate value by providing the tools needed to
impact organizational initiatives

•They give you the opportunity to earn credits for
courses and experiences OUTSIDE of the
traditional HR role.

•Strategic business activities will provide you with
the leverage needed to implement your HR
initiatives and add to your credibility as a thought
leader.

•They will ensure your continued development as a
valued business partner.

• SPHR distinction adds value to the brand that is
YOU !
