Celebrate National Poetry Month in April with a poem instead of a tweet
Members may download one copy of our sample forms and templates for your personal use within your organization. Please note that all such forms and policies should be reviewed by your legal counsel for compliance with applicable law, and should be modified to suit your organization’s culture, industry, and practices. Neither members nor non-members may reproduce such samples in any other way (e.g., to republish in a book or use for a commercial purpose) without SHRM’s permission. To request permission for specific items, click on the “reuse permissions” button on the page where you find the item.
To honor the creativity and ingenuity of our readers and in preparation for National Poetry Month in April, SHRM Certification is pleased to announce the inaugural SHRM HR Haiku Contest—we'll call it
HRaiku. Think past the 140 characters of a tweet and explore the possibilities in 17 syllables divided into three lines of poetry (five/seven/five). Haikus don't have to rhyme, and usually don't. Each HRaiku poem should touch on some aspect of HR, certification or SHRM. Three winning entries will be published in the April 2017 issue of
SHRM Certification Update.
Not sure how to begin? Here are some examples to inspire or amuse you:
SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP: Each puts you on the road to success.
Next-generation credentials for smart HRpros. It's true--SHRM rocks!
Society for Human Resource Management: Get certified here.
Submit your entries, as many as you like, via e-mail ONLY to
HRaikuContest@gmail.com no later than March 15, 2017. Please do not submit entries to any other SHRM-related e-mail address. Include your name—or pen name, if you don't want attention—plus your city, state, country and e-mail address (your e-mail address will not be published). Winners will be determined solely by the editors. No monetary gifts or prizes awarded other than a congratulatory e-mail, publication in the April issue and the esteem of your colleagues. Good luck!
