(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – As a way to improve job training and safety practices, the Human Resource Director for a local city is now a certified SHRM professional.

The international certification was achieved through eight months of intensive work through the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

New Philadelphia HR Director Mary Kurtz explains that by earning this achievement, it sets the city apart by showing the administration’s commitment for continued improvements in the event of judgmental situations, as well as basic and in-depth knowledge of human resource issues and best practices.

Those certified must maintain their training allowing the HR professional to remain current on new management dynamics.

Kurtz says that the certification comes with a three-year time frame before additional credits must be earned.
