A new year makes most of us evaluate our lives and careers and get motivated to make a fresh start if we need to do so. That is no different when it comes to how certificants feel about their credentials – motivation is a major theme for them. As we continue our review of comments from hundreds of HR professionals who hold our PHR®, SPHR®, GPHR®, California, HRBP℠ or HRMP℠ credentials, we find that motivation to stay current in the HR profession, as well as self-motivation and motivation to further their careers, are behind certification and recertification for our 120,000+ credentialed HR professionals. Here’s what some of them said:
“Keeping my certification continues to establish me as a prepared HR professional. At the same time, it also strongly motivates me to continuously enhance my skills and industry knowledge.”
“My certification gives me a sense of accomplishment and motivates me to be truly engaged in my profession.”
“The rewards associated with being HR certified are truly phenomenal. It is a title that represents self-initiative and self-motivation, combined with dedication and commitment.”
“It is so easy to get bogged down with day-to-day HR activates and you forget to stay current with changes in the HR field. Certification It motivates you to stay current on HR issues and go to training classes and seminars regarding HR. Not only do you get credits toward recertification, but the classes help you with your job and career as well.”
