Phishing emails using SHRM name
I just wanted to give our members a heads up that there is an email being sent out to HR professionals. It claims to be an invoice from SHRM for your annual membership fees. The scammers have lifted logos and such and even give the correct phone numbers. It looks like they are trying to get you to send a check to their fake address. That was the piece of information that didn't match SHRM website information.
It would probably be safer to go to SHRM's website and renew over the phone or through their secure payment portal. If you need to pay by check you can go to their printable application here: https://www.shrm.org/about-shrm/Documents/SHRMProfessionalMembershipApplication.pdf
Please be cautious when you receive requests for information or payment that you didn't instigate. It seems every year there are more schemes out there.
Please let us know if you would like a copy of the Domestic Violence in the Workplace PP presentation that Skagit Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services Presented at the April SIHRMA breakfast Meeting. You can contact email@example.com for more information.

Many employers are taking a more holistic approach to employee wellbeing. A key component is recognizing the diverse needs within your population. However, many times mental health is left out of the equation. Although 1 in 5 adults in the United States are coping with a mental health issue, adapting your company culture and wellness programs to meet this broad spectrum of needs presents a significant challenge. This session will provide strategies to create an inclusive culture, reduce stigma, and focused approaches for meeting the mental health needs of your employees.
• Participants will have a greater understanding of mental health issues in the workplace
• Participants will be able to identify steps for nurturing inclusiveness and engagement in the workplace.
• Participants will learn strategies to manage common challenges including stigma, organizational and/or individual resistance.
