Each year, CPHR Nova Scotia offers a members-only Mentorship Program. Many HR practitioners recognize the value of learning from others’ experience, and members working at the senior level are volunteering their time to ensure that the next generation of HR professionals are prepared to meet the changing needs of the profession and industries in which they work.
Our Mentorship Program is based on the CPHR Competency Framework, or HR Core Competencies, which are based on the HR Body of Knowledge in Canada. Mentors selected for this program have a specific area of expertise within the functional competencies.
