The need for qualified HR professionals is nearly universal across all industries, and Business-Programs.com, which provides educational resources about online business programs, has the information workers need to start or further a career in human resources. In a new article, "PHR Certification: Don't Leave Business School Without It," columnist Amelia Gray outlines the benefits of investing in HR certification and why such certification is becoming more necessary (http://business-programs.com/articles/phr-certification-dont-leave-business-school-without-it.html%20hopefully%20boosting%20traffic).
As Gray explains, earning HR credentials such as the Professional Human Resource (PHR) certification requires passing a rigorous exam, meeting continuing education and training requirements, and regular recertification. As a result, an increasing number of top companies are seeking employees with human resources certification including ADP, Boeing, and AT&T (http://business-programs.com/articles/phr-certification-dont-leave-business-school-without-it.html%20hopefully%20boosting%20traffic).
In a recent article, Salary.com and MONEY Magazine ranked the best jobs in the country and Human Resources Manager came up as #4 on the list. According to these experts, senior-level positions can pay annual salaries of over $280,000 or even more at the executive level in top companies. One of the perks to the role is variety of the work and the opportunity "to make work more rewarding for workers." With such a wide array of industries requiring human resources professionals, many career paths are available to suit personal interests.
Top companies tend to value employees with professional HR certifications over employees who only have a degree. Says Isaac Dixon, Vice President of Human Resources at Unitus Community Credit Union, "I have found that certified HR professionals have a better grasp of the theoretical and practical demands of our work," and goes on to say that HR professionals who have become certified "seem to possess a higher level of motivation to continue to learn once on the job."
