As President of the Greater Baton Rouge Society for Human Resource Management (GBR SHRM) I would like to welcome all new and returning members! 

Since 1977, GBR SHRM has served as a resource for local businesses and human resources professionals. GBR SHRM promotes fellowship and an understanding of human resource issues while providing a forum to exchange ideas relating to human resources management. GBR SHRM strives to increase effectiveness of both workers and management; and to keep members informed on industry trends.

As the premiere HR organization in the area, GBR SHRM members benefit from networking with HR professionals and companies. Member benefits also include local professional development opportunities; access to current best practices; opportunities to develop leadership skills; and development of a reputation and credential in the HR field.

The trying times we have experienced over the last year have without a doubt changed our workplaces as we know them. GBR SHRM is committed to being the professional resource you need. We continue to make logistical and program changes so that we can meet the needs of our members.
