The New SHRM Foundation

For the last 50 years, the SHRM Foundation has funded two major initiatives: academic research on effective and efficient HR practices, and scholarships for HR professionals and students. Over that 50 year span the SHRM Foundation has impacted the lives of thousands of HR professionals and students by providing research-based HR solutions and scholarships—but it was time for a change.

Difficult inclusion challenges impact the workforce and the workplace, and the SHRM Foundation is dedicated to helping HR professionals meet those challenges and achieve success. To meet this goal, the SHRM Foundation listened, learned and worked to shift our strategy for the next 50 years.

  • research-based HR solutions for challenging inclusion issues facing employees and potential employees.

New SHRM Foundation purpose:

We are grateful for the support we receive each year from SHRM members. It is our pleasure to serve and empower HR professionals and students. Please join us in 2017 as we take on the important work of creating inclusive workplaces.
