Committed to the Advancing of the Human Resource Profession

Having a voice in the legislative process is critical for Human Resources as a profession to ensure that laws are passed that are reasonable and not burdensome for employers to comply with and to shape the future of our workplaces in the state of California and beyond.


The California State Council of SHRM’s (CalSHRM) One Voice Program reflects our commitment to advancing the HR professions “Standard of Excellence”, by displaying “significant technical or professional impact on the human resource profession.”


We have made a significant impact for the Human Resource profession, with CalSHRM and the 120,000+ HR professionals in the state moving from being an afterthought in the legislative process five years ago, to now being a trusted resource and advisor when creating legislation that impacts employers and employees not only in California but around the country.
