PHR and SPHR Certifications Boost Pay in Nearly All Sectors
No matter where you live or where you work, earning a PHR or SPHR certification means a higher average salary. That’s among the findings of the research behind PayScale’s new report “Worth It? The Value of the PHR and SPHR.” PayScale analysts looked at the median pay for a given job title and compared those that held either a PHR or the SPHR with those that did not. They then rolled up these values to analyze the impact of a PHR or SPHR on salaries in entire metros and industries. Across ten largest metros and ten of the most significant industries, holders of one of the two certifications on average make significantly more than those who do not.
