By Hank Jackson, SHRM President & CEO

In July, we took a major step to solidify the Society’s position in the vanguard of the HR profession by bringing a premier association for senior HR professionals into the SHRM family of affiliated organizations: HR People & Strategy (HRPS). Collectively, we will be a stronger voice for the HR profession.

If ever there was a need for a stronger, more unified voice, it is now.

Today, the economy is still creating uncertainty for our organizations. Globalization is challenging all of us to broaden our thinking and the scope of our work. Shifting demographics are adding a new dimension to workforce management. The skills gap is making it harder to find the right talent.

Technology is turning the very concept of “the workplace” on its head, and the list goes on. SHRM is expanding to create greater unity in HR.
