NEW SHRM FOUNDATION VIDEO

As part of our new mission to build more inclusive organizations, the SHRM Foundation has developed a number of resources on the Aging Workforce. We've recently created a short introductory video (just 1.26 minutes) to help you and your members learn more about this topic.

This video highlights some quick tips for supporting mature workers and helping them contribute more fully to your organization. 

It's an excellent introduction to our Aging Workforce Initiative, and we encourage you to share the video at an upcoming chapter or state council meeting, and on social media. Visit our Aging Workforce page to learn more.

LOOKING BACK: MAKEBA CLAY'S FINAL THOUGHTS FROM HER VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE IN GHANA

Makeba Clay in Guana.jpgACDI/VOCA and SHRM Foundation international volunteer, reflects on her volunteer experience in Ghana with the Techiman Maize Traders Association (TEMTA) in her latest post on the ACDI/VOCA website.

From Makeba: "I'm so glad I learned about this opportunity through the SHRM Foundation. Working on this USAID-supported project via ACDI/VOCA's Farmer-to-Farmer Program gave me an opportunity to experience first-hand the inner workings of a very important development project focused on solving real problems in an international context."
