A Message from Bob Carr, SPHR, JD 


Dear Volunteer Leaders:

I wanted to inform you personally of an excellent opportunity to help your organizations gain national and international recognition for their HR management best practices.  On March 1 we announced, together with the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP), the launch of our new annual award, the HRM Impact Award.

This award, co-sponsored by SHRM, SIOP and our two foundations, is the first international award to honor organizations that have outstanding evidence-based HR management practices.  The award competition will select winners based on HR practices and initiatives that have been measured and determined successful through evidence-based, data-driven analyses.

One or more winning organizations will be recognized publicly each year.  Any for-profit, not-for-profit or government organization located anywhere in the world may apply for this award.  Submissions will be accepted March 1 - July 1, 2013.  Further information and application instructions can be found at

Please encourage your organizations to compete for this honor.  I would love to see one or more of you at the award presetnation ceremony in October.

Best regards,

J. Robert Carr, SPHR, JD
SHRM Senior Vice President
