Ohio SHRM State Council Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

Columbus, OH, May 22 2020 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Ohio SHRM State Council its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the COUNCIL’s accomplishments in 2019.

The EXCEL award is given to state councils and chapters to recognize major accomplishments, strategic activities, and tactical initiatives that elevate the profession of human resources.  

“So much of SHRM’s impact on the world of work can be traced back to the dedication and hard work of our chapters and state councils like Ohio SHRM State Council. These leaders took the initiative and drove changes to make workplaces where employers and employees can thrive together,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “The Platinum EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by Ohio SHRM State Council —it’s also a recognition of the grit it took to do it.”

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.
