Supporting professional empowerment is a major part of our mission.

Since 1976, our certifying body, the WorldatWork Society of Certified Professionals, has awarded more than 25,000 of our prestigious designations worldwide.

Testimonials

"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's guidance for professional development and certification has provided many values for us. It has improved our self-competence as remuneration professionals and our confidence in designing and proposing new rewards programs/initiatives for our organizations. With the opportunities for instructor and participants to share experiences, we have gained insight to practices in other industries and countries. Overall it has helped to increase our knowledge in areas that support our work and with the Global Remuneration Professional (GRP) certification we receive global recognition as both local companies and multinational organizations find value in those holding this designation."

"The tools and curriculum provided by WorldatWork has definitely increased and enhanced my compensation field of knowledge. Employers recognize the broad scope of learning represented by WorldatWork designations and my studies prepared me for a promotional opportunity within two months of earning the CCP."
