HR Certified LLC Beats The Odds By Celebrating Fourth Anniversary

HR Certified LLC is celebrating its 4th Anniversary, which commemorates a continuous journey of evolution of personal and professional growth, and fulfillment all while impactful in its years in business. This is a huge milestone for the Atlanta-based HR Professional Services business, providing HR preparation courses to busy HR Professionals looking to obtain HRCI (aPHR, PHR, SPHR) and SHRM (SHRM-CP & SHRM-SCP) Certification since 2018.

HR Certified LLC got its start in 2018 when founder Anthony P. Howard, the founder, found a need to increase representation in the Human Resources industry and saw the opportunity to address it through upskilling and attraction efforts.

One of HR Certified LLC’s earliest challenges was adequately scaling the business while still employed as a full-time employee.

While every business faces challenges, some, like HR Certified LLC, are fortunate enough to enjoy real successes, wins, and victories too. One such victory came when HR Certified, LLC was recognized by Forbes through acceptance as a Forbes Coaches Council Member. It recognized our high-quality standard as a business and assisted greatly in branding efforts.

Anthony P. Howard, Founder & CEO at HR Certified LLC, was quoted when discussing another big win. “One of the high points of HR Certified LLC’s history so far was Another big win was the formalization of a strategic partnership with HR Education Network that expands capabilities to include more choices for clients in class offerings, more variety of instruction to meet the unique learning styles of our students, enhance the service model to include professional coaching and onsite training options, and expands our geographic footprint to include three cities, Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas..”

HR Certified LLC’s Founder, Anthony P. Howard says, “We’re delighted to be celebrating our 4 Year Anniversary. I believe the secret to success in this business today is to follow your passion and connect that to the greater good. Keeping your passion as a guide will increase your resiliency for the many setbacks and distractions that will come.”.

HR Certified LLC currently has 12 employees and has big plans for the upcoming year. One of their core objectives is to become the enabler of top HR talent in the United States through upskilling and attraction efforts for underrepresented groups.

HR Certified LLC would also like to thank friends, customers, and partners for their good wishes on this happy occasion.
