"With a new Congress and many state houses across the country
now convening, there is an opportunity to unite diverse voices on national
policies that influence modern workplaces and impact the 115 million Americans
represented by SHRM’s 300,000 members."
Emily M. Dickens, SHRM Corporate Secretary and Chief of Staff
There are several issues ripe for bipartisan progress in
the new Congress that impact work, the worker and the workplace.
We call on policymakers to:
Support effective workforce development strategies.
Enact modern paid leave and workplace flexibility solutions.
Advance healthy work cultures and workplace equity.
Build a modern immigration system that fuels economic growth and protects U.S. workers.
