Formerly called

American Society for Personnel Administration

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is a professional human resources membership association headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. SHRM promotes the role of HR as a profession and provides education, certification, and networking to its members, while lobbying Congress on issues pertinent to labor management.


Founded in 1948 as the American Society for Personnel Administration (ASPA), the organization operated on a volunteer basis until 1964, when it established headquarters in Berea, Ohio, and began hiring staff members. In 1984, the headquarters was moved to Alexandria, Virginia, and in 1989, the organization changed its name to the Society for Human Resource Management.[3]

SHRM was ranked the twelfth largest association in the United States in 2015,[4] bringing in $114.56 million in revenue. The association has more than 575 chapters in the United States and around the world, which provide certification, education and networking opportunities. The organization is currently focused on the Department of Labor's new overtime regulations, health care reform, the skills gap, workplace flexibility, sexual orientation nondiscrimination, and compensation equity.[5]

Today SHRM has over 400 staff members and over 285,000 members in 165 countries. The President and Chief Executive Officer is Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP.[6]


The organization's Survey Research Center[7] produces research on workplace issues and their implications for the HR professional and business leaders. Among its products are the annual Employee Benefits Survey[8] and Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey[9] and the monthly Leading Indicators of National Employment (LINE) report.[10] SHRM conducts Customized Research Services for organizations.


SHRM holds annual conferences and regional student conferences. The individual state conferences are organized by SHRM's State Councils.

SHRM's national conferences include:

  • The Annual Conference & Exposition[11] , attracting around 15,000 attendees annually in June, There are hundreds of concurrent sessions, and an HR marketplace.
  • The Employment Law & Legislative Conference[12] is held in Washington, D.C. every March,
  • The Talent Management Conference & Exposition[13] is held in April, designed for recruiters, HR generalists and managers with recruiting responsibilities.
  • The Leadership Development Forum[14] held every year in September, is designed for mid-level managers looking to move into HR leadership .
  • The Diversity & Inclusion Conference & Exposition[15] in October

Lobbying activity[edit]

SHRM lobbies governmental bodies regarding workplace law and industry practice. For example, in April 2008, SHRM announced in a press release that its representatives had appeared before the US Senate to petition for changes in the administration of the Family and Medical Leave Act.[16]

The organization announced in the November 2003 issue of its HR Magazine that it had submitted a position paper to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission suggesting factors the agency should consider when determining how to amend the definition of the term "job applicant" for the purposes of record keeping required by companies in order to comply with affirmative action and anti-discrimination laws.[17]

In 2003, SHRM conducted an e-mail survey of its members to gauge the effectiveness of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) It presented the results of this survey to the EEOC at a meeting on September 8, 2003.[18]

In November 2006, the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) of the U.S. Department of Labor established an alliance with SHRM to encourage and promote the employment of people with disabilities.[19]

In 2015 and 2016, SHRM worked to oppose the United States Department of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Overtime regulation. The rule greatly increases the salary under which employees are eligible for overtime and the number of the employees who qualify for it.[20]
