PHR vs SPHR or both?
I'm currently an HR manager and I am trying to decide which test to take. Someone told me that most companies ask for PHR. Now does this mean that they specifically desire PHR over the SPHR or does having the SPHR automatically mean that it's better than the PHR and it's well over the PHR requirement that companies ask for? Is the PHR a totally different skill set than the SPHR? I have thought about taking both tests and wonder if that's the best way to go. I'm only assuming that the SPHR is more valuable than the PHR due to the title of "Senior," and wonder if taking the PHR would be redundant if you already have the higher certification. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
