The Inland Empire Society for Human Resource Management (Inland Empire SHRM) Chapter was established as a 100% SHRM affiliate chapter in 2004 to meet the needs of Human Resources professionals in the Inland Empire area. The mission of Inland Empire SHRM is to provide HR professionals in Riverside and San Bernardino counties with the information necessary to stay current on legislation and best practices in the field of Human Resources. The Inland Empire SHRM chapter provides HR professionals an opportunity to network with peers to share information on the latest HR practice trends and best practices.
Due to the dedication of our members, Inland Empire SHRM membership has grown to over 400 HR professionals from the Inland Empire. Ongoing member support and participation is an essential and valued part of our chapter.
