What is the SHRM Foundation?
The SHRM Foundation is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), yet it is a legally separate organization, and is not funded by SHRM membership dues.
 
Its mission 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.

What does the Foundation's work include?
  • 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. Your financial support is vital to ensure that the SHRM Foundation can continue this important work.
 
How can I support the SHRM Foundation?
You can make a tax-deductible donation as an individual, State Council, local chapter, or other organization.  The Wisconsin State Council has set a goal of raising $10,000 as a State Council.  Look for upcoming opportunities to help us reach this goal.

Bio:
 
Chris Berg has been a local and national member of SHRM since 2000 and I received my PHR certification in 2001.  I was on the GMA SHRM Board for five years from 2007-2010 serving first as Secretary/Treasurer and then as VP of Membership.  I then joined the WI SHRM State Council as Treasurer in January 2013-Present.  In 2013 I moved to Milwaukee and joined the Metro Mil SHRM and in May 2015 I was appointed co-chair of the Total Rewards SIG group.
I would now love to move into the State Council role of Foundation Director.  I believe that my history with SHRM demonstrates my dedication and leadership to the association.  I am committed to furthering the professional.  I have recruited many individuals to join and actively participate in their local chapters.
