Elevate Your Talent Strategy. Join us in Chicago, IL – April 24-26, 2017.
This past Tuesday, SHRM partnered with the Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA) and hosted a special advocacy day session as part of the 2016 California HR Conference in Long Beach, California. SHRM A-Team members, as well as members of PIHRA's board of directors, had the opportunity to meet senior district congressional staff members representing a number of U.S. members of Congress from the Greater Los Angeles area.
For the first half of the program, six congressional staff members representing five federal congressional districts addressed the group about how constituents can best communicate with congressional district offices. Following their remarks, the A-Team members and PIHRA board members had an opportunity to share in a mini roundtable lunch discussion the HR perspective on a number of federal workplace policies impacting California employees and employers, with a special focus on current legislation before Congress to address recent changes to overtime regulations.
This strategic and exclusive event reinforced with these public policy decision-makers how valuable HR professionals can be as a resource for lawmakers and their staffs when debating workplace issues in Washington. It also provided SHRM members a special opportunity to educate these congressional offices about the role HR plays in today's workplaces, as well as how certain legislative and regulatory public policy initiatives can impact their organizations.
