Education & Opportunity

We are a proud supporter and contributor to the SHRM Foundation, charity affiliate of SHRM.  But what IS the SHRM Foundation? It's the Research arm of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).  Here are but a few of the items on their agenda:

  • Strategic thought leadership initiative. The SHRM Foundation is conducting a multi-phase program to identify and analyze critical trends likely to impact the workplace in 5-10 years.
  • Innovative academic research grants.  The SHRM Foundation is a leading funder of HR research.  Over the past three years, the SHRM Foundation has awarded more than $1.8 million in grants to fund rigorous, original academic research with practical implications for HR management practice.
  • Scholarships.  The SHRM Foundation awards $170,000 annually in education and certification scholarships to professional and student SHRM members, and doctoral students.
  • Educational resources.  The SHRM Foundation's Effective Practice Guidelines series makes research findings easily accessible to HR practitioners.  The Foundation has also created a series of educational DVDs for SHRM chapter programming, staff trainings, and executive education sessions.
