Commitment Counts. Ask Leslie.Leslie Freeman, M.A., SPHR since 2008

I earned the SPHR certification to validate the knowledge, abilities and skills that I currently use as a successful human resources director and owner of my own company, Adept Human Resources. I knew that the SPHR would add substance to my resume because this certification is the highest credential in my profession. Since passing the SPHR exam, I have been able to command a higher consulting rate, and clients have a strong sense of confidence in my capabilities. Most importantly, having the letters behind my name empowered me to contribute strategically and enhance HR’s contributions to my clients. I wear my SPHR letters proudly, motivating and encouraging other HR professionals to reach the highest heights!

HR certification is a career-long commitment that proves to your peers and your organization that you are driven to be successful in HR management. Earning your HR credentials can

  • Increase your professional confidence
  • Set you apart from your peers
  •  Result in greater respect from the organization in which you work
