Certified Executive Compensation Professional (CECP)®

Executive compensation is the most complex and dynamic field in total rewards. In order to be successful you need a broad and deep understanding of strategy, plan design, administration and evaluation of executive compensation plans.

Possessing the Certified Executive Compensation Professional (CECP) signifies that you are an expert in your field. As a leader, it demonstrates that you have the knowledge, experience and critical skills needed to design and manage programs that attract, motivate and retain dynamic executives and leaders who have the ability to provide positive business results and organizational strategies.

WorldatWork Society recognizes that expertise in executive compensation comes from a broad variety of experience and education. As a competency-based designation, the WorldatWork Society recommends CECP candidates have three or more years of experience. The CECP examination covers all topic areas addressed in the Body of Knowledge.

Certification speaks volumes. Let yourself be heard.
