Ok, I have a handful of certifications that I encourage my staff to obtain. Traditionally, the company pays for the self-study materials and the 1st exam. If you fail an exam it's on you to pay for the retake. I'm now looking to allocate bonuses for each certification obtained. I'm looking at a tiered structure: $100, $250, $500, $750, and $1000. I'd like some help in the placement of the certifications. Here's what I have so far:
ITIL Foundation Certification in Service Management
MCTS: SQL Server 2008
MCITP: Enterprise Messaging
ITIL Service Capacity
MCSA: SQL Server
For those of you who have done some of these, do you have any recommendations? I don't want to over-value a certification (I doubt I'm undervaluing any at this point).
