Female human resource practitioners have outshone their male counterparts in exam results released Tuesday.

Institute of Human Resource Management (IHRM) National chairman Dalmas Odero said female candidates outdid the males with 22 CRHP exam papers undertaken.

It also emerged that the number of female candidates was higher compared to males, according to Human Resource Management Professionals Examination Board.

“22 CHRP papers were examined by the board. Out of the total number of candidates, 259 were male candidates and female candidates were 1071,” said the chair.

The exams saw 1330 candidates assessed in June this year. This means that prospective Human Resource professionals will get to know their fate following the release of the eleventh Certified HR Professionals (CHRP) examination results.

The examination subjects were drawn from the three levels of CHRP curriculum including CHRP Part I (level 1 and 2), Part II (level 3 and 4) and Part III (level 5 and 6).

Part three was the best-performed level with an average mean score of 60.95 followed by part one with 58.42 and part two with 55.47.

Odero further announced the revision of the CHRP programme and the development of new curricula by HRMPEB.

These initiatives, Odero said, will equip HR practitioners with new skills and enhance professionalism within the practice.

“HRMPEB revised the CHRP Program which incorporates competencies required by current HR practitioners.  In addition, HRMPEB has developed new curricula in certificate and diploma in Human Resource Management,” Odero said.
