SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources) Test Questions With Detailed Answers. Preparation- 3

Video Structure

This video tests your knowledge of the responsibilities covered by the exam domains with the goal of exposing you to questions formatted similarly to those you would find on the actual exam. The more questions that you expose yourself to, the better prepared you will be on exam day. The PHR exam content makes up the first part of these videos. Questions are focused on the operational nature of a generalist’s day-to-day activities, such as implementing and managing typical HR programs and systems. The question content is focused on the five functional areas of the exam,

1. Business Management 20%
2. Talent Planning & Acquisition 16%
3. Learning & Development 10%
4. Total Rewards 15%
5. Employee & Labor Relations 39%

It is useful to note that on the PHR exam, more than half the content is related to the functional areas of Business Management and Employee & Labor Relations. If you are on an accelerated preparation path, it is recommended that you start with these sections and seek perfection in your scores. The first section ends with a full-length PHR practice exam.
HRCI notes on its website that “the PHR is for the HR professional who has experience with program implementation, has a tactical/logistical orientation, is accountable to another HR professional within the organization, and has responsibilities that focus on the HR department rather than the whole organization.”

A senior-level HR professional is expected to be well versed in the strategic development of HR programs and systems that are aligned with business drivers and outcomes.

1. Leadership & Strategy 40%
2. Talent Planning & Acquisition 16%
3. Learning & Development 12%
4. Total Rewards 12%
5. Employee Relations & Engagement 20%

The exam is weighted with 60 percent of content in Leadership & Strategy and Employee Relations & Engagement. Knowing this will allow for more focused preparation activities. This section also includes a full-length SPHR-specific practice exam. The SPHR exam is focused on the business, rather than at a department level. HRCI notes that “the SPHR demonstrates your mastery of the strategic and policy-making aspects of HR management as practiced in the U.S. The credential is designed for big-picture thinkers responsible for planning rather than implementing HR policy. Organizations seek out SPHR professionals for their proven accountability for HR department goals, for breadth and depth of knowledge in all HR disciplines, and for understanding business issues beyond the HR function.”

Both the PHR and SPHR exams are three hours in length and include 175 questions—150 questions that are scored and 25 questions that are being validated for future use. You will not know which questions are being scored and which are part of the 25 being pretested. Each domain includes a summary statement, a list of short exam responsibility statements, and a broader list of knowledge requirements. These are listed at the beginning of each chapter. Finally, of the thousands of questions available on exam day related to the breadth of content covered in the ECOs, no two exams are exactly alike. These computerized tests will deliver to you a 175-question experience that is unique. Some candidates may see an abundance of questions related to union organizing, for example, while others may see only one or two questions on this content. This means that you may feel both over-prepared and under-prepared on exam day. Try not to worry about this! Looking at the intense preparation process through a long-view lens will reinforce the reason you are seeking certification in the first place—for future application of best practices on the job. We wish you the best of luck as you strive for excellence in our industry and for your organization.
