SHRM Advocacy Team (A-Team)

Advancing Public Policies that Foster Better Workplaces

Policymakers rely on the voice of SHRM members to inform legislation from its inception and to shape enduring policies that address the needs of employees and employers. SHRM members are uniquely qualified to advocate for workplace policy issues, as their collective work impacts the lives and livelihoods of more than 362 million employees globally.
