What is a Digital Badge?
International Institute of Human Resource (IIHR) and digital badging provider Accredible have partnered to provide our certification holders with a digital badge of their HR Certifications. Badges are web-enabled representations of your HR certifications. Your digital badge is made of an image and metadata uniquely linked to you. This ensures that only you can take credit for your achievement.
You can share your digital badge to popular online destinations, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. It can also be embedded in a résumé, your personal website, or an email signature. Anyone who views your badge can select it to learn more about your skills and to verify its authenticity.
Why is IIHR offering badges?
IIHR wants to provide you with the tools you need to move forward in your career. Your digital badge allows you to easily share the details of your skills in a way that is trusted and verifiable.
Your HR Certification badge empowers you to:
- Easily share your certification online with your professional network.
- Find out which employers are looking for individuals with your skills.
- Discover what kind of salary you could expect to earn in a job that requires your skills.
- Search for new job opportunities associated with your certification, and apply in just a few clicks.
Digital badges are online representations of your achievements. IIHR’s digital badges provide our certification holders increased value by enabling interested parties to view and learn more about the credentials you hold with a single-click. When someone (such as manager or human resource staff) clicks on your badge, they will be directed to an overview page providing them metadata on your qualifications and specialized skills, as well as the process you completed to earn and maintain the credential. This additional layer of content helps you more fully explain your capabilities and high level achievements.
Why Should I Use This Digital Badge Program?
IIHR has worked with Accredible to develop this digital badge program to help solve a problem many of our certification holders have expressed to us – “lots of HR and management professionals do not understand the specialized skills and abilities I have, or how to verify them.” Your adoption of the IIHR digital badge program will help increase the awareness of our specialized cybersecurity certifications, and more importantly how they differentiate you from other security professionals, which will greatly enhance the value of being IIHR CERTIFIED!
