Never has organizational success been so reliant on the quality of HR practice. Our opportunity is now. Together and forward, we can lead the transformation of the workplace in ways that benefit business, as well as individuals and families.

Supporting & Representing You

No matter where you are in your career, and regardless of your HR role, SHRM is here to support you every step of the way.


SHRM provides the resources, tools and connections to save you time and money, while keeping you and your organization compliant, current and confident.

  • Vetted news, regulatory information and trends impacting your organization.
  • SHRM’s vast array of online resources to stay current on all HR disciplines and operations.
  • Industry research studies, analysis and benchmarking reports.
  • Daily and weekly HR e-newsletters. 
  • Sample policies & job descriptions. 
  • HR Q&As, Express Requests and toolkits.
  • Guidance from HR experts with SHRM's Ask an Advisor Service and from peers through SHRM's exclusive online community.       


Set yourself apart with the HR profession's premier competency-based certifications.

  • Unlike memorization-based certification credentials, SHRM Certification measures an HR professional's most critical skill: the ability to apply HR principles to real-life situations. No other exam can come close. 
  • Exams are accredited by the Buros Center for Testing. 
  • SHRM Certification not only prepares you for the challenges ahead - it demonstrates to colleagues, supervisors, and potential employers that you're invested in your career and ready to lead.    


SHRM’s expertise, thought leadership and innovative policy solutions are highly sought out by public policymakers on national and global complex workplace issues.

  • SHRM member volunteer advocates provide 100% coverage of Congressional Districts. 
  • When Congress or federal agencies develop workplace policy, HR’s voice will be heard. The SHRM Advocacy Team, or “A-Team,” represents thousands of HR professionals who actively communicate the needs of the profession to these public policymakers.
  • By working together, we can help advance effective workplace public policy and strive to move our profession forward.     

Together we will raise awareness about the true impact HR has on the workforce of the future.
