1) Enhance your credibility
With CIPD being the professional body for HR around the world, it is also viewed by HR and L&D professionals as the most trusted and experienced resource, delivering the latest HR policies and practices, in order to gain their industry qualifications.
Therefore, it is unsurprising that CIPD qualifications are held in high esteem and are especially valued by professionals in the industry, making them the most desirable qualification to attain in the HR and L&D professions, and perhaps the most sought after by employers.
To add, as these qualifications deliver the most up-to-date industry practices, they also represent commitment, dedication and credibility of CIPD certified individuals to the industry.
2) Makes your CV stand out
More often than not, recruiters tend to favour CIPD certified individuals, over non-certified job applicants, to hire for their HR teams. This is based on the fact that studying for a CIPD qualification guarantees that you have the best industry training available.
Subsequently, CV’s that include a CIPD qualification can often set you apart from other candidates, and ensure your CV is at the top of the pile.
This is also supported by research findings, which suggest that the top requirement in senior HR job posting is for candidates to be CIPD certified, since over 20,000 senior people professional job postings between July of 2017 and July 2022 asked for candidates to be CIPD certified and hold a CIPD membership.
