CHRP™ - Certified Human Resource Risk Practitioner
Certificate in Human Resource Risk Planning & Management

Whatever is your position and function, if you mismanage your organization’s “greatest asset” - your employees - this may be the end of the road for your organization. Incompetent, ineffective, de-motivated, etc. employees/managers/leaders at every level of an organization not only generates tremendous waste of resources at very high cost, but also inevitably lead to destructive behaviors that will threaten the survival of many organizations.

Hence, the purpose of the CHRP™ Program is to equip HR professionals and managers with the methodologies and tools necessary to understand how to influence people’s behavior and nurture an organizational culture that supports optimal performance.

It is a professional development program for executives to managers that takes place at the NUS Extension @ Kent Ridge in Singapore.
