Competition is high in nearly every industry. How do you elevate your firm from theÂ rest? Certification can be a differentiator by demonstrating to customers, prospects,Â and competitors that your organization follows industry standards and adheres to aÂ high level of ethical practices. Ultimately, certification demonstrates a commitmentÂ to professionalism and continued learning. These merits boost professional credibilityÂ and prestige within your network, among current clients, and when pursuing newÂ business opportunities.
At HRO Today, our Bakerâs Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings, magazine, research department, andÂ global group of expert association members have given us an extensive, data-based understanding of theÂ market. This has prepared us with the knowledge and skills to create a successful program: The HRO TodayÂ Provider Certification Program. This important industry standard and benchmark can help service partnersÂ break into new markets and better position themselves in the competitive HR industry.
By becoming certified, companies can maximize the potential of existing markets and demonstrate toÂ current and prospective customers that they have undergone a rigorous audit and testing process and haveÂ reached a specific level of accountability of standards and ethics. A provider who successfully completesÂ the five-step process will receive a âCertified Providerâ badge from the HRO Today Association. This sealÂ of approval indicates that your organization has undergone evaluation and testing to verify that you are aÂ credible and trusted provider.
This form of certification ensures organizations have access to qualified service partners in the HR servicesÂ and technology industry. For the buying community, the HRO Today Provider Certification programÂ provides a much-needed service that allows consumers to confidently target providers who are operatingÂ at an established level of service.
