What is the difference between SPHRi and SPHR?
The SPHRi is a global HR credential for those employed in international organizations or with global responsibilities, while the SPHR is focused on the US domestic market. Both are based on HR Competency Model and share a common body of knowledge. The exams differ in the examples used to test competency application. The SPHRi exam includes a percentage of international-specific content not included in the SPHR exam.
The SPHRi is for internationally-based HR leaders and validates senior-level HR competency and mastery of generally accepted HR principles in strategy, policy development and service delivery in a single international setting.
