I’ll go against the grain here. Of course experience is ultimately more important. But having a SPHR is still a differentiator, and the later you are in your HR career, the more likely your peers will have the SPHR instead of the PHR, SHRM-SCP instead of the SHRM-CP, etc.

The added value of having the ‘Senior’ in front of the certification is marginal, but the value is still there. Only you can decide whether it’s worth your time and money spent.

I spoke to 2 recruiters who specialize in HR this week and their feedback was that companies value the experience more than the certification. Although it’s good to have, what weighs more is the experience

I’m currently working with a senior level HR candidate. This individual has a doctorate in business with a focus in HR, her SPHR, Federal, and private sector experience at the singer level, and has a fabulous personality. I’m curious is anyone else having difficulties play some candidates like this? At this point I’m starting to think it’s racial or her sex based of the lack of interest in this candidate.

I then suggested him to unpack that a bit more. When one is not hitting their KPIs, there could be many factors.

My initial view is that it could be true but we also have to look at CAPABILITY, TECHNOLOGY, WAYS OF WORKING etc before assuming our KPI is not set up right.

What is your approach in this scenario?
