WorldatWork GRP and CSCP ® Certifications, GCIP and Other Courses


 The full GRP ® (Global Remuneration Professional ®) and the smaller, focused CSCP ® (Certified Sales Compensation Professional ®certifications, and the other WorldatWork courses, are considered fundamental requirement by many companies to develop their Total Rewards and Reward-related practices and professionals - ultimately boosting talent attraction / retention / engagement, sound labor cost administration and overall business performance.

The GRP ® certification is required in many multinationals "by default" to become Total Rewards professionals of reference and elevate and integrate their Reward functions.  The CSCP ® certification distinguishes top-notch Sales Compensation and Incentives-related professionals.  

Other focused courses, the Global Compensation Immersion Program (GCIP) and others (bite-sized Multi-National Sales Compensation, Geographic Pay Strategies, etc.) -, add value to companies and individual practitioners as per their specific needs.

With the WatW courses (GRP and CSCP ®, GCIP or otherwise), companies adopt an unified, internationally-validated, world-class Rewards language and approach - by training and certifying (or recruiting already-certified) many or all of their Reward, Mobility, HR and even selected Sales, Finance and Business practitioners effectively, with a provider-neutral approach.

We also have other non-WorldatWork courses such as Executive Remuneration, and other tailor-made courses for specific client needs in the field of Reward under request.

Advantages of the WatW GRP and CSCP ® certifications, the GCIP and other courses


As opposed to other courses, diplomas, certificates, etc. issued by local consultants, universities or business schools, the GRP ® is the only provider-agnostic Rewards' professional certification, not mere diploma, that is automatically recognized across the world by all actual practitioners (all three major world regions of Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific). 


On their side, the CSCP ® certification and other WatW specific courses (GCIP and others) are also extremely relevant worldwide and are considered a key component of the Rewards, HR generalists or Sales Compensation professionals' toolkit, as appropriate.

For example, the CSCP ® is obtained by people in charge of administering large and complex Sales Compensation programs (sitting in HR or in the Sales organization itself), the GCIP is often used with people new to Rewards to get them to speed quickly, and so on.

The GRP ® and the other courses have an unique, often imitated but not quite equaled Body of Knowledge curated by the most advanced world's company experts (consultants and actual practitioners), with content exams on all Total Reward areas relevant for a top quality real-life practitioner

Now good news is that the GRP ®, the CSCP ® and several other WatW courses are delivered by Zereon Associates GmbH with European and DACH region adaptation.

 The courses are in virtual-online and also in presential classroom formats from Switzerland (Zurich), by senior certified instructors with vast, direct expertise in Continental Europe and Germany/Switzerland/Austria.  Alternatively, there is also an option of a self-paced e-learning (self-study). 

Certification itself and the other courses are modular - can be taken individually and in any order according to particular preferences and agenda, towards making the certification and / or developmental process flexible for our busy Participants.
