Which is best: PHR certification or an HR degree?

I've worked in HR for several years for smaller companies, but don’t have an HR certification. To further my career in HR and make myself more valuable to larger employers, some mention certification, but others emphasize having a degree in HR. Which is more valuable: SHRM’s PHR certification? A degree? Both?—Gienah

A bachelors degree is always good to have because as you advance within the field it is a job requirement for the higher level positions (such as Senior Analyst, Manager, Supervisor). An HR Certification is desirable and shows that you are an expert in the subject matter but is usually not a job requirement. It will depend on the time, available funds and your career goals. However, having both would be ideal.
