SHRM and Canadian HR Associations Announce Collaboration

ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 18, 2016 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA) have agreed to work together on key priorities that affect HR practitioners and the profession across North America and around the world.

The two organizations have signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining where and how this collaboration will take place.

“As a result of this partnership, we will be more responsive to the members of both organizations by addressing their needs and contributing to the creation of the workplace of tomorrow,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, SHRM’s president and CEO. “It aligns well with our mission to serve the needs of HR professionals and advance the practice of human resource management.”

“We’re thrilled to be officially collaborating with SHRM,” said Anthony Ariganello, chief executive officer of CCHRA. “We have been working together very well informally and saw the tremendous potential to expand the possibilities for advancement, so we have put a formal agreement in place that allows us to explore more of the potential for the relationship.”

The agreement identified initial areas where the organizations see value in collaboration. They are joint research, professional development programs, shared access to some member benefits, information and content sharing, and further alignment and mutual recognition of CCHRA and SHRM credentials and certifications. For human resource practitioners throughout North America, this agreement helps solidify the organizations’ capacity and commitment to represent the profession throughout the United States and Canada.
