Connecting at the Highest Level in HR

The SHRM Executive Network provides a powerful platform for industry leaders to come together and exchange the ideas that drive change and deliver results.

  • A blend of small, private working sessions and networking events.
  • Grouping of fellow executives with similar backgrounds and experience.
  • Early access to findings and data from SHRM’s vast HR research initiatives.

Experiences are delivered both virtually and in-person to ensure these opportunities to foster peer relationships are accessible despite the many demands on executives’ time.

Monthly Peer-to-Peer Calls

These intimate virtual events tackle the prevailing challenges facing HR. Members are provided preview access to cutting-edge field research and firsthand perspectives of industry icons. Small, curated working groups address these problems as they relate to specific industries or business functions.
