Why bother getting certified?:
HR professionals make more money and are more successful when credentialed.
Employers who support HR employee credentialing have more loyal HR employees.
“In a recent study (2015) by Emporia State University, 422 HR professionals were surveyed and the researchers found that certified HR professionals received more pay and had higher occupational commitment than uncertified HR professionals. When employers provide support for certification, HR professionals had higher organizational commitment. More HR professionals are credentialed with HRCI.”
