Many of the things happening in Washington today – from the government shutdown to the healthcare rollout – add up to uncertainty. But the words of financial journalist and publisher B.C. Forbes are as true now as they were during a different Washington debate nearly 90 years ago: “Uncertainty hurts business,” and “it annoys individuals.”

While there may be uncertainty in Washington, I want you to know there is no uncertainty with SHRM. We will continue to cover these issues closely and stay involved in the debate so that we can explain how it affects you and your organizations. We will provide accurate data and information so that you can make informed decisions to better lead your organizations.

So stay connected with us, and click here to read my commitment to help you stay informed and make sense of what’s happening in Washington.
