SHRM recently awarded HRLA its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the chapter’s accomplishments in 2017. The award aligns individual chapters’ and state councils’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that enhance the human resource profession.
“SHRM exists because of our great chapters and state councils like HRLA which work tirelessly to help advance the important mission of the HR profession through initiatives that support our future, build inclusive organizations and focus on workplace readiness,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “Recognizing you as a recipient of this prestigious award is just one way to show that SHRM supports you and that we are by your side step by step as we move Together Forward.”
The EXCEL Award can be earned at four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each level has a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments that must be met. HRLA will receive recognition in SHRM publications and at conferences, a logo to display on its website, and information to share with its members about the significance of this award.
HRLA is committed to their vision of providing HR professionals with a venue to enhance their knowledge and to share their expertise within and outside the association. Because of this vision, HRLA was also a 2016 recipient of the Excel Platinum Award and in 2015 received the SHRM Foundation’s Chapter Champion Award and Excel Silver Award.
