    Resources SHRM Can Provide
    On a daily basis, SHRM’s members comply with federal, state, and local workplace
    laws and administer benefits and programs to their employees that reflect creative,
    progressive and dynamic workplaces. SHRM consistently communicates with our
    membership and we are able to provide:
    • Access to HR constituents who live and work in every congressional district and
    state.
    • Research and information, which provide timely insight on emerging workplace
    public policy issues, as well as labor market and economic data and trends.
    • Expertise on effective and flexible workplaces through When Work Works, a
    collaborative nationwide initiative by the Families and Work Institute and the
    Society for Human Resource Management that brings research on workplace
    effectiveness and flexibility into community and business practice.
    SHRM’s Policy Priorities
    SHRM works in a nonpartisan manner to advocate for effective workplace public
    policies and to communicate to members of Congress and regulatory agencies
    about the impact of workplace policies on both employers and employees. This
    guide focuses on a variety of issues important to the HR profession that impact
    the workplace, specifically: labor and employment, civil rights, tax and benefits,
    immigration, health care, and workplace flexibility.
