As a certified HR professional myself, recertification is a challenge: especially when it comes to SPHR, GPHR and California PHR certifications. I never, ever, ever want to have to take those tests again so I work hard to maintain my credentials through education. It’s important for me in my continuing HR education to want to push myself and go beyond the standard run-of-the-mill topics. While I want to maintain my certification, I also want to push myself to be a more well-rounded HR professional.

2. Elevate Your Good Faith Recruiting Efforts with Digital – 1.0 Business Credit

And for companies who don’t meet those corporate obligations, the result can be costly and time-consuming with settlement costs ranging from $165,000 to $1.8 million not to mention countless audits, meetings and time spent on additional paperwork for alleged violations according to BLR.
