CNY SHRM Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces
Posted on July 21, 2020
Syracuse, NY, July 20, 2020 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded CNY SHRM its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the Chapter’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 CNY SHRM. 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 CNY SHRM—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. CNY SHRM 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.
Over the course of 2019, CNY SHRM implemented several initiatives in support of our local HR community. We helped organizations meet sexual harassment training requirements to remain compliant with New York State laws, we worked to educate employers on the importance of diversity & inclusion in the workplace, and we promoted the hiring of candidates with a criminal background. We also offered guidance on the topic of work-life complexities that many HR professionals face, and provided the opportunity for members and non-members to attend a CNY SHRM board meeting as we demonstrated the value our chapter provides to the HR community.
