I’m think about Hogan

What certification program is this?

I have both a PHR and SHRM-CP and my take is it depends on what you are going for. PHR is more HR foundational knowledge focused and the SHRM certifications make a much more explicit connection of HR to the business.

I’m considering the SPHR certification over the SHRM-SCP. From my understanding in asking a few others, SPHR is well known and on more job descriptions but curious to get others opinions.

SPHR has been around longer and is definitely more well known

I’m considering PHR certification. I’ve been told by many that more companies recognize it more than SHRM but that SHRM gives you a wider array of knowledge. Will be starting a CDP (Certified Diversity Professional) program soon bc I mainly work with ERGs and diversity metrics.

PHR is more foundational HR knowledge and SHRM is more business/competency focused. PHR is more well known and has been around longer

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 boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.

I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
