Washington, May 17, 2018 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded SIHRMA its prestigious Platinum Award for the Chapter’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 SIHRMA 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. SIHRMA 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.
During 2017, SIHRMA expanded its communications with members and the business community by creating a LinkedIn group for our membership and participating in Schmooze Fair. SIHRMA also participated in assisting the Washington Employment Security Department in creating new curriculum for their resume writing workshops. Two of the board members presented an interview workshop for Miss Oak Harbor pageant. For more information about SIHRMA, visit sihrma.org.
