Congratulations to Katie Gerken, HDC Recruiter, for earning her Society for Human Resource Management SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) certification in February 2018. Earning the SHRM-CP certification involves significant course study and an examination in the areas of employment law and implementation of policies and strategies. The SHRM-CP is designed for HR professionals that serve as a point of contact for staff and stakeholders, deliver HR services and perform operational HR functions. The SHRM-CP requires continuous education to maintain. Heinzerling Community is very proud of Katie for this accomplishment!
