Message from SHRM CEO Hank Jackson


Dear SHRM Members,

On behalf of all of us here at SHRM, I want to share our deepest sympathies for the victims, families and loved ones whose lives have been so tragically and profoundly impacted by Sunday’s nightclub shooting in Orlando.  Words cannot fully express our sorrow.  As President Obama has said this was an attack on all Americans. 

SHRM has deep ties to the Orlando community as we’ve been fortunate to develop personal relationships with many amazing people - well-beyond our many SHRM members.  

When the 2016 Annual Conference kicks off Sunday June 19th, the HR professionals gathered in the nation’s capital plan to honor the memory of those whose lives were cut tragically short.

As a collective group we have a strong voice and we will use that voice to help the healing process – and to foster our ever-present belief in the power of inclusion. 

All that we do as HR professionals is rooted in a fundamental belief that what matters most are people – the people that we take care of in our workplace and beyond. 

With deepest sympathy,

Hank Jackson
