Name: Society For Human ResourceManagement
Purpose: The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) was founded in 1948 by a group of 28 individuals. These founding members anticipated the need for a national organization to represent the personnel profession. Their goal was to provide continued professional development opportunities, promote national networking and to generally advance the interests of a profession they recognized as being in transition.
Mission: SHRM serves the needs of the human resource management profession by providing the most essential and comprehensive set of resources available. In addition, the society is committed to advancing the human resource profession and the capabilities of all human resource professionals to ensure that HR is an essential and effective partner in developing and executing organizational strategy.
