Many companies outside of finance and insurance are encouraging employees to sit for certification exams—and some are flat-out requiring the effort.

 

Companies say the certifications are proof that their current or prospective employees meet an industry-wide standard. And, some companies say a growing number of their clients insist on dealing only with employees who have earned industry designations.
