Workforce Readiness


We did it! Ohio SHRM was awarded the SHRM National Pinnacle award for our efforts on the HR Makes A Difference - Enterprising Leadership Program. The program is an HR 101 boot camp for small business that do not have on site or staffed HR departments. My sincere thank you to everyone in Ohio that was and continues to be involved in this amazing and award winning project. Check it out in the WR resource links to the right.

As I finish my third and final year as WR Director for the Ohio State Council I would like to acknowledge some amazing people that have been a significant part of my tenure.

First - Joan Berry Kalamas was my original HR mentor. I appreciate everything you have lead me to and through. George Markon saw in me the ability to communicate my passion for workforce readiness to others. Andrea Gurcsik gave me the freedom to fly unencumbered. Each Ohio Chapter WR director and advocate helped me realize that passion and hard work do pay off. Finally, Steve Browne graciously gave me a way to retirement.

Thanks to everyone who was a part of our WR projects with the military, Junior Achievement, ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve) and Ohio's one-stops.

I am looking forward to following Ohio SHRM to see them top the Pinnacle Award!
