The workplace is the intersection of people, culture, and business. When the three are aligned, people thrive, businesses grow, societies advance. SHRM and the HR profession operate at the nexus of this intersection, and the issues we face are also the ones shaping our society in the 21st century. The skills gap, immigration, the emergence of automation and AI, harassment, equity and inclusion—they all show up at work. We can leverage HR leadership to create a better world by creating better workplaces.
