Garden State Council SHRM

The Role of the Garden State Council - SHRM

The Garden State Council-SHRM (GSC-SHRM), comprised entirely of volunteer leaders, is a professional organization supporting the Human Resources profession and the eleven Society for Human Resource Management chapters based in New Jersey.  Founded in 1987, its rich history laid the foundation for its evolution into an influential voice of the Human Resources profession in New Jersey.

GSC-SHRM serves as the state-level affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management. It provides HR professionals in New Jersey with programs, conferences and more. It supports SHRM initiatives within the state, and also serves as an entry points for HR professionals new to New Jersey or for those in an area not covered by a local chapter.

The principal public activity of GSC-SHRM is the Annual Conference & Expo.

If your workplace is effective and flexible, then get recognized by applying for the When Work Works (WWW) Award. The WWW Award, hosted by SHRM, honors organizations that are using workflex as a strategy to make work “work” better – for both the employer and the employee.


All applicants receive a free customized benchmarking report comparing your responses to other applicants, winners and nationally representative samples of employers, based on national data from SHRM’s National Study of Employers (NSE).
