May 21, 2018 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded Ohio SHRM State Council its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the Council’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 Ohio SHRM State Council 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. Ohio SHRM State Council 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 Ohio SHRM State Council accomplished several initiatives in 2017 which resulted in the Platinum Award including: Conducted membership calls including guest speakers so that members could learn important information regarding membership and recruiting volunteers which resulted in increased volunteerism, membership and member retention; Decided to strategically move the State Conference from Sandusky, OH to Columbus, OH to better serve and accommodate the expected amount of HR Professionals attending the conference; Signed a new contract for the venue and housing options for the OH SHRM HR Conference, setting us up for success to grow to an even larger State Conference to advance the profession; and brought back the District Director role to include five District Directors on the State Council to support our 25 local chapters.
