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.
