    May 30, 2019

    SHRM-Columbus Area Chapter Awarded

    For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

    COLUMBUS, GA: May 28, 2019

    The EXCEL award aligns individual chapters’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes major accomplishments, strategic activities, and tactical initiatives that elevate the profession of human resources.  

    “So much of SHRM’s success in shaping better workplaces—where employers and employees can thrive together— is owed to the hard work of our chapters and state councils such as SHRM-Columbus Area. Through their courage and leadership, SHRM-Columbus Area is driving true, measurable progress toward the healthy, productive, and dynamic workplaces of tomorrow,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “Awarding this Platinum Excel Award is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps this chapter has taken this past year.”

    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. SHRM-Columbus Area Chapter 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.

    The SHRM-Columbus Area Chapter received the Platinum level award for participation in five initiatives during 2018 to advance the HR profession by engaging members, partnering with the student chapter of CSU, and offering 10 CEU’s during the year.
