In 2017, the SHRM Foundation not only has a new logo and website but a new strategy for the future. Together we are transforming the workforce and transforming lives.

The SHRM Foundation is a values-based charity organization that champions workforce and workplace transformation and inspires HR professionals to make it happen.

For the last 50 years, the SHRM Foundation has funded two major initiatives: academic research on effective and efficient HR practices, and scholarships for HR professionals and students. Over that 50 year span the SHRM Foundation has impacted the lives of thousands of HR professionals and students by providing research-based HR solutions and scholarships—but it was time for a change—a change of focus. 

Difficult inclusion challenges impact the workforce and the workplace, and the SHRM Foundation is dedicated to helping HR professionals meet those challenges and achieve success. To meet this goal, the SHRM Foundation listened, learned and worked to shift our strategy for the next 50 years.

You told us you wanted your SHRM Foundation to support causes you believed could make a difference—causes you would support with both money and your time in making a local impact. Here is how we are refocusing:
