Welcome to HR Indiana SHRM, the Indiana state affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

We are dedicated to advancing the field of human resources in Indiana by providing information, leadership and opportunities for local chapters and SHRM members across the state.

We meet this mission through a variety of initiatives, led by a state council of over 30 volunteers, including the presidents of 14 local chapters that are geographically located throughout the state to serve HR professionals within their communities. Through our state council volunteer leaders, we work to advance our mission in many ways, and here are just a few:

Attend HR Indiana

Our #1 connection point, resource, and developmental opportunity is our annual state HR conference, HR Indiana. Over 1,400 attendees gather each year in Indianapolis to learn more about the profession, to connect to others, to get energized, to advance their skills. Our state conference one of the largest in the United States and, as such, has plenty of resources, outstanding key note speakers, and most certainly lots of fun. If you connect in only one way with our organization, connect at our state conference. You will be a fan and I’m certain we’ll see you back year after year. Register today!

Join your local SHRM chapter

As mentioned, we have 14 chapters throughout the state, with their own chapter boards, initiatives, meetings, and educational opportunities for their members. Why join a local chapter? Well, there is really no better way to connect with other HR professionals within your community, HR practitioners that are often challenged by the same situations as you are, and you have a local resource to call on as needed. In addition, most chapters offer educational sessions through monthly meetings, with outstanding experts in the HR field. Learn more about our Local Chapters.

Earn HR Certifications

SHRM Certified Professional

We’re proud that our SHRM certifications meet the highest standards with accreditation by the Buros Center for Testing. With over 600 certified professions in our chapters, SHRM offers rigorous certifications that demonstrate to the global business community our strength in competency and knowledge—two aspects of HR practice that are required for effective job performance. Our state council and chapters provide the support needed to help HR professionals not only attain certification but also maintain that certification through diverse educational opportunities. Learn more.

We have several other initiatives we are focusing on, including developmental, educational, and connection opportunities for students interested in the profession. We are also one of the top supporters in the country of the SHRM Foundation, which helps deliver scholarships to deserving HR professionals and students and provide HR solutions for the workplace for all. We also work with several partner organizations throughout the state.

Everything we do is to advance the HR profession. Continue to look through our site, see our accomplishments, connect with our volunteer leaders, and learn more how HR has an impact on our businesses and communities throughout the state of Indiana.
