How to get a TMI certification?

The time when employees would just look to make it through the day by putting in the minimum required effort is passé. The aim now is to help the company to grow, and this requires more than limiting oneself to day-to-day task completion.

 

For HR professionals, the focus needs to shift to enhancing their skillsets. And even this is not enough, as these enhanced skills need to be verified and certified. And one of the best ways to do this is by choosing to enroll for an accredited talent management certification.
