LINE Survey Panel

The SHRM LINE® Report would not be possible without the participation of hundreds of HR professionals. We are always looking to add more firms to our sample of manufacturing and service-sector organizations to the LINE Survey Panel.  

  • All of the data provided is kept strictly confidential and aggregated in a manner that will not allow the identification of any participating company.
  • Each month participating organizations are sent a link to the survey web site to answer five short questions. Click here for an example of the monthly survey questions.
  • Survey requests are e-mailed on the Thursday before the second Tuesday of each month, and organizations have approximately a week and a half to respond. It takes only about five minutes each month to complete the survey and submit the response. 
  • In return for participation in the LINE panel, SHRM can send your CEO (or another person in your organization) an annual letter of recognition explaining how your participation has helped advance the HR profession.
  • Do you have your SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP? Earn up to 20 PDCs by using LINE data to advance your organization. Refer to page 8 of the recertification handbook. 
  • We also periodically offer monthly drawings for gift certificates to the SHRM Store, copies of SHRM survey reports and other items of interest to HR professionals. If you are an HR professional and SHRM member and are interested in becoming involved in the LINE Survey Panel please contact us at
