The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest HR professional association with over 300,000 members strong, representing 70,000 organizations in 165 countries. It is strengthened by its network of 51 State Councils and 571 affiliated Chapters representing the leaders and decision makers in the human resource industry. SHRM has launched the fastest-growing HR certification program in the world: the SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP which is focused on teaching and testing the practical, real-life information HR professionals need to excel, including knowledge, skills and competencies.
“No one else has as much insight as HR does into companies and the people who drive their success. No other profession knows the complex, rapidly changing world of work quite like we do. This means HR professionals are in the best position to speak to the real-life implications of workplace public policy.” SHRM past-president, Henry G. (Hank) Jackson
