A Message from Our Director

Our continued thoughts and prayers are with those recovering from Hurricane Harvey. The outpouring of concern and support to our SHRM community has been overwhelming. Our affected chapters include Coastal Bend SHRM, South Texas SHRM Chapter, Southeast Texas HRA, Texas Bay Area SHRM, and HR Houston. In the coming weeks and months we will keep you informed of progress.

At this time during the recovery process our expertise is needed to move our employers and employees forward. Stay connected on our social media outlets and this website to hear the latest. If you are a business or HR professional in need of assistance, please contact us at info@texasshrm.org.

Best Companies to Work for in Texas

Texas SHRM is proud to partner with Texas Association of Business and Best Companies Group to annually recognize the 100 best employers. Last month, we celebrated the winners at a Texas-sized gala event in Austin. It was a privilege to meet these fine employers and their teams as they received their awards. We are proud of the HR professionals who represented these employers. They collaborate daily with internal staff at all levels to create optimal workplaces to move their organizations forward.
