Work-Life Certified Professional® (WLCP)

Work-Life Certified Professional® (WLCP)

Compensation is a key element of a Total Rewards strategy. Recognized as the world’s standard since 1976, the Certified Compensation Professional (WLCP) designation is known throughout the total rewards community as a mark of expertise and excellence in the fundamentals of compensation.

Possessing the Certified Compensation Professional designation gives you an edge in today’s competitive world signifying that you are an expert in your field. It gives you, and your employer, confidence in your job skills. The WLCP designation demonstrates you possess essential knowledge about integrating compensation programs with business strategy, designing and administering base and variable pay programs, complying with legal and regulatory requirements, and effectively communicating compensation information.

The WLCP is earned after obtaining a passing score for all required exams.
