Human resources professionals in the south suburbs have a new chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management available to them.
The group held a chartering ceremony Feb. 12 for the South Suburban Cook Human Resources Association chapter in Matteson.
SHRM bills itself as the world’s largest human resources management association. The organization has more than 225,000 members and 575 chapters throughout the United States. The south suburban chapter has 35 members from organizations of various sizes and industries.
“The South Suburban Cook Human Resources Association will serve as an important local voice, providing leadership on key business and workplace issues and helping to improve the practice of human resource management within our membership and within the community,” South Suburban Cook Human Resources Association President Paulette Stark said in a news release.
