What "other" designations respondents are working toward:

MBA

May look into CHRP - but right now, it is too expensive

Working to maintain my CHRP. Might consider the employee benefit specialist program also.

PMP

My University degree. I think that the CHRP is just a money grab. You have to go to so many conferences and so many seminars, to gain points, if you don't have enough points, you loose your designation. How can they do that, you passed the exam to get that designation. So, you didn't go to enough seminars, or renew your membership with HRPAO (maybe you were laid off). But how does that mean you don't have the knowledge you once had, when you passed the exam in the first place?

I may be interested in the Compensation or Benefits designation afterwards.

PS (Payroll Supervisor) or PCP (Payroll Certified Practitioner) and PM (Payroll Manager) or CPM (Certified Payroll Manager)

I think that education and knowledge are very important as well as experience. I have a certificate in HR management and am working towards my MMHR
