Ever wonder how SHRM develops the various positions it takes on public policy issues pending before Congress or state legislatures?
Once an emerging policy issue of importance to human resource professionals is identified, SHRM's Government Affairs team partners with our Research Department to develop survey questions to take the pulse of the membership on what it feels about the issue. Our Research Department may utilize the full SHRM
Survey Report or a shorter
Question of the Week format to obtain input from our members. In addition, Government Affairs staff gathers information by convening a series of public policy focus groups at the various SHRM national conferences, regional conferences and chapter meetings.
Once this input is gathered, staff develops a proposed public policy statement that is then subject to review by several SHRM Special Expertise panels who have jurisdiction over the subject area for their comment and review. The proposed public policy statement is then presented to the Board of Directors for its review and approval.
Below is a selection of public policy position statements recently adopted by the SHRM Board of Directors addressing public policy issues currently being debated in Congress and state legislatures. To view these documents, please click on the topics listed below:
Questions related to any aspect of these core principle documents should be directed to
Mike Aitken, Vice President of Government Affairs.
