What is the SHRM?

As an employer, you are probably already aware that the next couple of years are likely to be a turning point for many business sectors.  In fact, if our country is going to move into a more prosperous time, we have got to start paying attention.  And that’s exactly what the folks at the SHRM are doing.

The SHRM, also known as the Society for Human Resource Management, is an association that deals with every aspect of human resource management.  The organization has more than 250,000 members across more than 140 countries.  HR professionals not only deal with hiring employees, but also help manage the staff, deal with employee relocation, and just about anything else you can think of.

Founded in 1948, the SHRM has almost 600 affiliated chapters, making it one of the largest organizations of its kind in the world.  There are chapters throughout the United States, China, and India to name just a few of the countries.  Part of the main focus of the SHRM is to make sure that businesses like yours have a strong human resources (HR) department.

A strong HR department knows how to handle employee issues such as salary, social issues, and relocation.  If you plan on growing your business and hiring competitively, you need to have a good employee relocation package.  The SHRM can help you with all of this.

Fox, Arianna Huffington, Sir Richard Branson, and other influential individuals.
