The Growing need for PHR and SPHR Certifications
The PHR and SPHR Certifications distinguish participants from other HR professionals and show their commitment to the ever-expanding field of HR. This HR certification proves to participants' peers and their organization that they are driven to be successful in HR management.
Earning your HR credentials can:
- Increase professional confidence
- Set participants apart from their peers
- Result in greater respect from the organization in which participants work
In today's job market participants benefit from acquiring the PHR or SPHR certification as many employers prefer and may even require such credentials. In order to keep up with the demand for professionals seeking this important certification UCF's SHRM Program has more than tripled in the two years, now offering multiple schedules at various locations in the Central Florida area.
