About NHRCI Programme

Human Resources is instrumental in the development of a knowledgeable and highly skilled workforce. When done right, effective HR management will not only create an excellent work culture with a passionate and dedicated team at the core, it will also strengthen employee productivity and support long term business growth.

The success of HR development and management in any organisation is dependent on the collaborative effort of the senior management and HR professionals at the helm. Therefore, HR professionals must be equipped with the latest knowledge and information about human capital development and its related areas that are relevant to their business and industry.

Realising this, NHRC has collaborated with the HR Certification Institute® (HRCI) in Malaysia to offer the NHRCI Certification to HR professionals in the country. The NHRCI Certification is the nation’s first joint certification programme that combines HR principles and global best practices from the prestigious U.S.-based HRCI International Certification, with knowledge of Malaysia’s labour, employment, and business legislations.

The NHRCI offers three types of certification to meet the varied needs of HR practitioners and professionals at different stages of their careers.

  • enhance the professional standards and code of conduct among HR practitioners, and
  • create a pool of Certified HR Professionals who will apply HR best practices in their organisations.
