SHRM Hawaii Supports the SHRM Foundation
The SHRM Foundation is the 501(c)(3) non-profit affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management.
The mission of the SHRM Foundation is to maximize the impact of the HR profession on organizational decision-making and performance by promoting innovation, education, research, and the use of research-based knowledge.
The SHRM Foundation's work includes:
Innovative academic research grants. The SHRM Foundation is a leading funder of HR research. In 2008, the SHRM Foundation awarded a record $750,000 in grants to fund rigorous, original academic research with practical implications for HR management practice.
Scholarships. The SHRM Foundation awards $170,000 annually in education and certification scholarships to professional and student SHRM members, and doctoral students.
Educational resources. The SHRM Foundation's Effective Practice Guidelines series make 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 support this work, the SHRM Foundation conducts an annual fundraising campaign. We are grateful for the generous support we receive from SHRM chapters and state councils, individuals, corporations and others.
