Elevating HR Expertise in Singapore: The Growing Relevance of IHRP Accreditation for HR Practitioners

Singapore’s Ambitious Plan: Doubling the Number of Certified HR Professionals by 2025

As workplace fairness guidelines become law, the demand for HR professionals is on the rise. Member of Parliament Patrick Tay emphasizes the need for more HR practitioners, prompting the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) to join forces and set a goal of doubling the current number of nearly 6,000 certified HR professionals in Singapore.

Introducing IHRP: Driving Professionalization and Strengthening the HR Practice

The Institute for Human Resource Professionals (IHRP) was established by the tripartite partners, including the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), NTUC, and SNEF, with a clear mission to professionalize and strengthen the HR practice in Singapore. Through initiatives such as the IHRP Certification, Skills Framework for HR, and Human Capital Diagnostics Tool (HCDT), IHRP aims to set the standards of excellence in HR, empower HR as a strategic enabler of business and workforce transformation, and foster an innovative HR services ecosystem.

IHRP’s Three Pillars: Certify, Enable, and Foster

IHRP plays a crucial role in three key areas:

  1. Certify HR Professionals: IHRP offers the prestigious IHRP Certification, considered the “gold standard” and endorsed by both industry professionals and tripartite partners. This certification validates the skills, knowledge, and commitment of HR professionals, boosting their professional reputation and credibility.
  2. Enable Enterprises: IHRP assists organizations in developing their employees and adopting progressive human capital practices. By promoting continuous learning and best practices, IHRP empowers enterprises to optimize their human capital and stay ahead in a rapidly evolving business landscape.
  3. Foster a Vibrant HR Community: Being part of the IHRP community provides HR professionals with invaluable networking opportunities. The platform facilitates knowledge sharing, collaboration, and learning from thought leaders and industry experts, allowing individuals and businesses to prosper and thrive.

The Importance of IHRP Credential for HR Practitioners

The IHRP credentials hold significant value for HR practitioners in Singapore. Here’s why:

  • Professional Recognition: Attaining an IHRP credential showcases your dedication to the HR profession, validating your expertise and knowledge. It enhances your professional reputation and credibility among peers and employers.


  • Industry Standard: IHRP credentials are developed based on rigorous standards and a competency framework aligned with global HR best practices. By earning these credentials, you demonstrate that you meet industry standards and possess the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in HR roles.


  • Career Advancement: Possessing an IHRP credential sets you apart from other HR professionals, increasing your chances of securing senior-level positions or leadership roles. It opens up new career opportunities and propels your professional growth.


  • Continuous Professional Development: Maintaining IHRP credentials requires ongoing professional development, ensuring you stay updated with the latest trends and best practices in the HR field. This commitment to continuous learning enhances your skills and keeps you competitive in the job market.


  • Networking and Community Learning Opportunities: The IHRP community offers access to a network of HR professionals, thought leaders, and industry experts. It provides a platform for exchanging ideas, learning from others, and staying connected with the dynamic HR landscape in Singapore.
