Body of Knowledge (BoK) and Competency Framework

      Your Guiding HR Capabilities Framework

The development of the CIPM Body of Knowledge and Competency Framework began with a comparative analysis focused on SHRM Body of Competency & Knowledge and CIPD Profession Map. The Institute’s value offerings were benchmarked with those of the Global HR Institutes (CIPD, SHRM and HRCI, HRPA-CA, RBL).

This Body of Knowledge which consists of Behavioural and Functional competences with clusters, core competences and allied competences will support the HR professionals in determining their proficiency levels thereby enabling them to find their path in delivering results in their organisations.

A special appreciation goes to the team that pooled and pulled these ideas together and ensured that the thoughts came into fruition. We want to specially thank some notable members of the Institute and key players in the HR profession who thoroughly deliberated on the ideas and validated same for use for the development and growth of HR profession. Chief among which is the Immediate Past President of the Institute, Mr. Olawale Adediran, FCIPM under whose leadership the BoK was conceived.
