What is an SPHR certification and how can it help your business?

Most organizations spend considerable time and money on the people side of their business. There is always risk associated with human resources decisions – in legal compliance, employee relations and other areas as well.

A qualified HR professional is needed to guide the organization in its decisions. An SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources) designates proven mastery of intricate HR laws and core practices that make organizations successful.

How is the SPHR-CA designation different?

A few years ago, the certification body, the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI), a globally recognized agent, recognized the distinct difference that California labor law posed on employers, both native to California, as well as those entities outside of California that employ here. A special designation, the SPHR-CA was developed.

An SPHR-CA certifies that the professional is not only knowledgeable in CA labor law compliance and best practice, but has the experience to enable practical application in the workplace.
