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

My firm has been WFH since March. Some attorneys started going back in to the office a few times per week. I don’t feel comfortable going back yet and to be honest I really enjoy WFH. It’s convenient, it saves time getting ready (I’m a woman so I save an hour in the morning not doing hair/makeup), commuting, lunch, etc. Once people are getting vaccinated and the partners start requiring us to come in to the office again, how do I express that I would prefer to continue WFH?
