How it works
Skills Badging Your HR team
Skills Badging delivers a structured process that takes your team on a rewarding path. This journey starts from the moment they earn a badge, all the way to applying their newfound knowledge in real-world scenarios.
Kickstart your journey with these 7 simple steps:
- Appoint a Point of Contact (POC) to fill up a checklist of required information (including indicating if project is current, upcoming or past projects completed within the recent 2 years).
- Email this checklist to IHRP for verification.
- Once cleared, each team member must submit their Skill Badges application individually.
- To apply, log in to your existing IHRP account or via your LinkedIn account. If you do not have an existing account, sign up here.
- Select your preferred ‘Skills Badges’ under IHRP Products.
- Proceed to payment.
- Check your inbox for an email invitation from Gnowbe.
Choose a speciality area to strengthen your knowledge in via our appointed mobile-learning platform, Gnowbe, or with one of our partner institutions.
This stage is optional, but recommended. If you’re familiar with the topic, you can start with Step 3.
As a team, apply what you’ve learned in a business project for the next 2-3 months. You’ll need to have a Project Sponsor who will supervise and confirm your application of skills.
Experienced professionals who have completed relevant projects in the past 2 years may consider utilising previous business projects for retrospective badging.
- Submit your business project details to IHRP along with evidence of your skills application.
- Overall project description (Project timeframe, key project objectives and project synopsis)
- Specific project details (Project role, responsibilities and key stakeholders)
- Detailed approach (Elaboration on how each skill was demonstrated)
- Project outcomes (Value created to the business)
*You may submit a current, upcoming or past project completed within the last 2 years.
- Appoint and onboard a Project Sponsor on his/her expected role in the application process before submitting the relevant information. Your Project Sponsor will be notified to verify your content submission.
Your work will be reviewed by our experienced community of Assessors, who are recognised for their expertise and contribution in the field.
Our Assessors are selected based on their relevant experience in speciality areas and include IHRP Senior Professionals (>8 years of experience) as well as experienced HR professionals (>10 years of experience). We also appoint Experts, who are recognised for their mastery and contribution to the HR community in their speciality areas and have good standing within the profession.
