Earn Recertification PDCs for COVID-19 Work

If you are seeking SHRM re-certification, all of your hard work towards COVID mediation efforts count with a bit of writing from you!  If you are engaging in activities that relate to preparing, implementing and managing your workplace in this current COVID environment, then complete your COVID-19 Response Summary Form to have your hard work count towards your current re-certification period!  You are already doing the work, now let’s make it count towards your professional certifications!  

SHRM is aware of the great amount of work many of you have done to support your organizations and/or communities COVID-19 needs and would like to acknowledge the countless hours that you have dedicated to this effort. If you are a SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP credential holder who is working toward recertification you can earn all 60 PDCs for your work in this area. 

To take advantage of this opportunity, you will need to summarize your activities using a form at the link below. The following examples offer a possible framework for documenting your COVID-related activities for credit:

  • CARES Act and its impact on unemployment 
  • Communicable disease exposure issue and quarantine pay 
  • Essential business and essential workers (definitions, hazard pay, protecting workers in the public) 
  • FFCRA law implementation and exceptions 
  • Furloughs, pay reductions, layoffs, WARN 
  • Hiring in a COVID-19 and virtual world (rescinding and delaying offers, i-9 issues) 
  • PPP loans and loan forgiveness 
  • Return to work issues (recall, health screening/testing, social distancing, fear of returning to work) 
  • Transitioning to a virtual workforce (telework, addressing employees who are unable to telework, keeping employees engaged)
