Through certification, you’ll equip yourself with the skills and distinction you need to be an effective total rewards leader.

Compensation Certifications

Compensation is a key element of a total rewards strategy. Recognized as the world’s standard since 1976, the Certified Compensation Professional (CCP) designation is known throughout the total rewards community as a mark of expertise and excellence in the fundamentals of compensation.

Executive Compensation Certification

Executive compensation is the most complex and dynamic field in total rewards and to be successful it requires a broad and deep understanding of strategy, plan design, administration and evaluation of executive compensation plans.

Sales Compensation Certification

Operative sales compensation programs are critical to the success of an organization. Global expansion and the everyday pressures on businesses today require a deep understanding of organizational and sales strategies in order to design effective sales compensation plans.

Benefits Certification

Keeping one eye on the marketplace and the other on regulations, you can shape innovative benefits programs that achieve business goals and comply with new rules. WorldatWork offers HR professionals the latest news and trends, advice from experts and strategic insights into healthcare, PTO and retirement benefits.

Testimonials

"My certification has helped to skyrocket my career as a compensation professional and as a university professor. It has given me perspective and insight that few professionals have in this market. I have been offered different positions since obtaining my GRP."

"At Siemens, we have offered the WorldatWork professional certification program to our global C&B community for nearly five years, and in the process more than 70 Siemens employees have earned their GRP® designation through cost effective on-site training. The knowledge conveyed has helped us develop a cohesive community of like-minded - and comparably knowledgeable - subject matter experts, establishing a foundation to drive our C&B mission worldwide. Siemens has also benefited greatly from the support provided by WorldatWork in setting up the on-site trainings, providing highly-qualified instruction and instructors. In addition to the GRP designation, we've also offered skill-building classes, which were very well perceived and contributed to immediate productivity achievements."

"WorldatWork training and certification programs have certainly helped me realize my personal and professional aspirations. Being a member has been instrumental in providing me with invaluable access to a network of my peers and the professional development tools that will ensure my career path stays on the fast track to success.
