On February 1, 2017, the SHRM Foundation and NAVSO assembled nearly 60 thought leaders and stakeholders representing a diverse set of public and private perspectives
relating to veteran employment with one goal in mind: improve veteran employee integration and engagement in the workforce. To accelerate the goals of a broader project,

Educational Resources

The SHRM Foundation’s Effective Practice Guidelines series makes research findings easily accessible to HR practitioners.  The Foundation has also created a series of educational DVDs for SHRM chapter programming, staff trainings, and executive education sessions. To fund its programs, the SHRM Foundation conducts an annual fundraising campaign. The Foundation recognizes the generous support of the SHRM chapters and state councils, individuals, corporations and others who make its work possible.

Your financial support is vital to ensure that the SHRM Foundation can continue this important work.

The Arizona SHRM State Council and our regional chapters work hard at ensuring our profession is provided for.  Each year, awards have been received in Arizona.  In 2010, our State Council won the “State Council Champion” designation!  This special honor recognized our exceptional support for the SHRM Foundation.  We are grateful for everyone’s commitment leadership, and generous contributions. In addition, our regional chapters VSHRA and NAHRA have received “Chapter Champion” designations.

 

Way to go, Arizona!!
