The past several years have seen an evolution of the HR function within organizations from an administrative unit to more of a strategic partner. Strategic human resource management involves a future-oriented process of developing and implementing HR programs that address and solve business problems and directly contribute to major long-term agency objectives. These trends are compelling the need for HR professionals to redefine themselves and learn to take on the role as a strategic business partner who is working collaboratively with both management and employees. Today's work environment provides HR Professionals the opportunity to reorient their agency's perception of HR not as an administrative unit, but as a contributing strategic partner. This training program will provide the knowledge and skills for HR Professionals to move towards the role of a strategic business partner.  

This training program is for current Oregon state government employees who are in senior or executive level HR positions.​

To participate in this program there will be an application process and the person will need to have completed the Functions of HR training program. After completing both training programs, graduates will receive the State Certified HR Professional certificate. The completion of the certification is considered the equivalent of six months of human resource professional-level experience.
