The Society for Human Resource Management believes that government and employers play a role in providing worker training and development opportunities to maintain a skilled labor force. SHRM also is committed to helping HR professionals remove the barriers that may prevent qualified workers from being fully considered for jobs—particularly because of their long-term unemployment status (SHRM.org)
