ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Four research surveys on issues of significance in the workplace will be released next week at the Annual Conference & Exposition of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
The conference, which is expected to draw about 15,000 HR and business leaders, is Sunday, June 19, to Wednesday, June 22, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Press briefings with the authors of three of the surveys will be held June 20 and 21 in the SHRM conference press room, room 102B of the convention center. The briefings also are available through conference call. (For dial-in instructions, contact SHRM Media Affairs.)
The surveys provide insights into workplace topics in the news. The surveys are:

This year is the 20th anniversary of the survey, and the report will include a 20-year comparison of employee benefit offerings.
