St. Lucie County Human Resources Association Awarded

St. Lucie County Human Resources Association Awarded

SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded the St. Lucie County Human Resource Association its prestigious EXCEL Gold Award for the Chapter’s 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 the St. Lucie County Human Resource Association. Through their courage and leadership, the St. Lucie County Human Resource Association 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 this chapter 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. The St. Lucie County Human Resource Association 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 St. Lucie County Human Resource Association established and reinforced partnerships with local organizations resulting in a healthy increase in membership.  In addition, the chapter co-hosted a daylong human resources conference, which allowed human resources professionals and local business owners to learn about the latest trends in all aspects of human resources and workforce development.  Perhaps the most significant accomplishment of the chapter was the success of the 17th Annual Best Places to Work program resulting in over a dozen local businesses being recognized as best places to work in St. Lucie County.
