I’m keeping my SPHR active currently because it was my original certification, my SHRM-SCP is grandfathered. Unsure when to let it go...

Same here... expensive to keep up both, but letting the SPHR go feels unsettling to me.

Same here! It certainly was helpful as far as getting me to critically think about situations but that's about it.

Yeah, I'm with you. Don't keep it active either

I renewed my SPHR once after completing it in 2010. So I guess it’s been expired a few years now. I don’t think it’s necessary to keep it active. It’s good to note as an achievement.
