Would a SHRM certification be beneficial for a consultant in organization strategy? Anyone in a similar boat?

Yes and yes, although I’d go with HRCI’s certification instead.

HRCI has been around longer and most are familiar with that certification. HRCI used to be the certification body for SHRM. A few years ago SHRM was looking for ways to create more income streams so without warning, they cut off HRCI and started their own certification. So few people were getting it in the beginning that SHRM gave no cost certification equivalent matching with their own, expecting the revenue for renewal cycles and training fees. It was all pretty shady.

It would be helpful but HRCI is more credible

I’ve been thinking about trying for SPHR but would need to do a lot of studying and am fully at a loss of where to start. Can anyone comment on the utility / value of paid courses or programs?

Understood. Just wondering about SPHR studying recommendations. Thanks

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 hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
