HRMA WNE Awarded 2018 Gold Excel Award from SHRM!

Human Resource Management Association of Western New England Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Human Resource Management Association of Western New England its prestigious Gold Excel Award for its accomplishments in 2018.

The EXCEL award aligns individual chapters’ and state councils’ 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 Human Resource Management Association of Western New England. Through their courage and leadership, Human Resource Management Association of Western New England 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 Gold Excel Award is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps Human Resource Management Association of Western New England 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. HRMA WNE 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.
