The Value of a Professional Certification
In order to stand out from the pack, many entrepreneurs choose to pursue professional certifications in order to increase their knowledge of their job and industry while differentiating their business from competitors. The staffing industry is no different. Our flagship industry organization, the American Staffing Association, offers a number of professional certifications designed to help staffing pros build their knowledge base, improve the quality of their work and grow successful businesses. If you’re curious about the advantages of professional certifications, here are three to consider:
Differentiation – As mentioned earlier, professional certifications differentiate both individuals and their businesses from competitors by highlighting their accumulated knowledge base and skills.
Networking – Certified professionals often have more relevant networks that can both help them set, and achieve, their career goals by providing guidance that non-certified pros often cannot obtain.
Leadership – Despite industry, the certification process often focuses on leadership training in order to better develop leadership and general business skills.
No matter your business, industry certifications are an important part of setting yourself apart from your competition and instilling confidence in your clients and professional connections. At AtWork, we require that our franchise partners become Certified Staffing Professionals via the ASA in order to set themselves apart from agencies in their area, from the onset.
