SHRM is a leading global Human Resources association with more than 300,000 members across 165 countries and thousands of organizations. WSA is among the largest employee research providers in the world, collecting surveys from millions of employees in over 200 countries around the world annually. WSA maintains one of the largest normative databases of employee survey data.
WSA’s content and benchmarks allow companies to measure what matters most to their employees, receive reliable comparisons to other companies they compete with for talent, and identify focused actions to increase employee engagement.
SHRM’s clients will also have access to WSA’s consulting services for support with survey design, analysis and post-survey action planning grounded in best practices proven to move the needle on workforce performance.
“Our robust and relevant database helps us ensure we constantly have our finger on the pulse of what is driving employee’s levels of motivation, commitment, contentiousness and pride in their organization,” said Zach Canaday, managing partner and co-founder of WSA. “SHRM clients will now experience what hundreds of our clients have – the best available research drawn from over 15.7 million employees around the world. This data makes human resources professionals smarter, more innovative, and a trusted resource for increasing workforce performance and driving critical business outcomes.”
As a result of this partnership, WSA clients will receive discounted SHRM memberships. SHRM promotes the role of HR as a profession and provides education, certification, and networking to its members, while lobbying Congress on issues pertinent to labor management.
“At SHRM, our mission is to create better workplaces for a better world. Partnering with WSA assists SHRM in accomplishing that mission by working to contribute to the engagement of all employees, leading to more successful organizations and ultimately, the progress of our society,” said Sean Sullivan, SHRM-SCP, SHRM Chief Human Resources Officer. “We are proud to partner with WSA and create added value for our clients, organizations and their employees.”
WSA’s content and normative database for SHRM client’s will be powered by Qualtrics. Qualtrics is the world’s #1 experience management provider and creator of the experience management (XM) category.
Capitalizing on 40 years of experience, WSA was started by Kenexa co-founder Bill Erickson and former Kenexa leaders Canaday and Kris Erickson. Kenexa was one of the largest employee research providers in the world before it was acquired by IBM in 2012.
