About Us

    Welcome to KYSHRM!

    The Kentucky SHRM Council is comprised of over 40 leaders with a mission to serve the HR professional and advance the HR profession in Kentucky. Kentucky SHRM Council is involved in many important initiatives that engage people within the HR profession, help employers lead their organizations, and advance the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Our volunteers contribute their time, energy and expertise to educate, advocate and lead HR. And those contributions directly impact the bottom-line and success of Kentucky’s employers.

    • The process to apply to be a Best Place to Work in Kentucky and receive state-wide recognition at our annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky Awards Dinner.

    Our State Council not only hosts statewide events, but also participates in statewide HR-related initiatives.
