Turn here for coverage of SHRM's activities and for workplace and HR news at the gathering
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) was the only HR organization that attended the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland on July 18-21. SHRM took part in events such as a discussion with female representatives in Congress and industry leaders on women's issues, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute describing the impact of the Hispanic vote in the 2016 election cycle, and the GOP Urban Mayors Forum.
SHRM hosted a public-policy presentation with the Ohio SHRM State Council and Cleveland SHRM Chapter that highlighted SHRM's 2016 policy agenda, important legislative and regulatory developments, and SHRM's advocacy efforts. This presentation was live-streamed on SHRM's Facebook page and is available to view for SHRM-SCP credit.
SHRM Online also attended and covered the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia the following week.
Henry G. "Hank" Jackson, SHRM president and CEO; J. Robert "Bob" Carr, J.D., SHRM-SCP; Michael Aitken, vice president, government affairs; and Tony Lee, vice president, editorial, led a SHRM contingent at the RNC.
While in Cleveland, SHRM's government affairs staff called on elected representatives, candidates for office and government officials to embrace the three core principles SHRM is advocating to advance policies for the 21st Century Workplace. SHRM also intends to spotlight the HR profession and raise awareness of SHRM and its thought leadership on key workplace issues facing employers and HR professionals.
In addition to HR news coverage, staff from SHRM and its affiliate, the Council for Global Immigration (CFGI), provided real-time election coverage of the conventions through social media channels such as daily blogs, Twitter messages, and the SHRM and CFGI websites.
