Institute for Human Resource Professionals (IHRP)

The Institute for Human Resource Professionals (IHRP) is set up by the tripartite partners: the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) to professionalise and strengthen the HR practice in Singapore.

IHRP implements a number of national human capital programmes, such as IHRP Certification, Skills Framework for HR and Human Capital Diagnostics Tool (HCDT).

IHRP has the goal of setting the HR standards of excellence, developing HR as a strategic enabler of business and workforce transformation and fostering a vibrant HR services eco-system to drive innovation and change. Through the IHRP Certification and other national programmes, IHRP aims to enhance the competencies of HR professionals, as well as create developmental and professional pathways for them. This will professionalise and strengthen the HR practice in Singapore, allowing HR professionals to be key enablers in their organisations.

IHRP partners with government agencies, tripartite organisations and the human capital development eco-system, including IHLs and private providers, to drive the adoption of progressive human capital practices in Singapore. IHRP is also the appointed program manager for the SkillsFuture Study Awards for HR and the National Young HR Talent Award.

Our 15-member board of directors is chaired by Ms Goh Swee Chen, former Chairperson, Shell Companies in Singapore.
