What is SHRM’s Advocacy Team?
As the voice of all things work, federal and state lawmakers rely on SHRM to inform and shape policy solutions that benefit work, workers, and the workplace.
Policymakers also rely on the voice of SHRM members–to inform legislation from its inception and shape enduring policy to best address the needs of employees and employers. That is why SHRM created the Advocacy Team (A-Team). SHRM’s A-Team is the core driver of positive workplace policy in action–and encourages all SHRM members to join and become an advocate on behalf of the HR profession.
As a member of SHRM’s A-Team—YOUR VOICE MATTERS. Join the A-Team today by completing the form.
The A-Team was created to enable HR professionals–like you–to make their voices heard on public policy issues impacting the workplace. As a member of the A-Team, you will build relationships with other SHRM members, develop persuasive communications and policy skills, and drive your career forward as a strategic partner in your organization.
A-Team members are provided with the training and education needed to effectively influence workplace policy. A-Team membership includes access to exclusive email alerts that provide the latest updates on federal, state, and regulatory public-policy developments, as well as ways you can engage on these issues.
You will receive opportunities to contact your lawmakers by sending emails or making calls, visiting them in their district offices, or attending state Advocacy Days organized by your SHRM State Council or Chapter, and more.
Policy Not Politics
As the Voice of All Things Work, SHRM pursues nonpartisan public policy efforts to promote flexible, inclusive and equitable workplaces that help employers thrive as talent is tapped, trained and empowered to reach its full potential.
