Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

I already have the SHRM-SCP. . would it be a value add to go for the SPHR as well?

Hoping to get advice on whether or not my outpatient PT practice warrant some “whistleblowing”: each therapist sees 10-20 patients a day making any distancing impossible. These numbers are not being limited. Our work stations are close together. Patients are screened for symptoms/fever... most of the time. Some PTs are allowing patients who are “breathing hard” on machines to take off their masks (!!!). We work under the name of a major medical center and are not taking this seriously
