Member Testimonials

“IndySHRM is a dynamic, active organization with many opportunities to get involved. As a committee leader in the past, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with our motivated, engaging Legislative Affairs committee to plan meaningful content for IndySHRM’s membership.”
Shelley Jackson, Plews Shadley Racher & Braun LLP
"Over the past two years as a member of the Diversity and Inclusion committee, I have been able to add depth to my HR knowledge from attending the programs IndySHRM offers while expanding my network with great people that I have met."
Britt Griffin, IndySHRM Diversity & Inclusion Committee Member
"I have participated in IndySHRM for over 2 decades because I find tremendous value in the relationships and the information exchange offered by the organization. Some of my favorite HR people are those I have gotten to know through IndySHRM over the years - folks I call for support, key learning and even just for fun. Being part of the board has provided another level of engagement that challenges me to participate in win-win relationship with the chapter. If you are an HR professional at any level and you are not part of IndySHRM, you are missing out."
