    Nevada State SHRM Council receives distinguished award

    The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded the Nevada State SHRM Council, the EXCEL Silver Award for 2010.  

    The SHRM Affiliate Program for Excellence (SHAPE) is designed to ensure a strong connection between SHRM and our affiliated state councils from a business perspective. In addition to clearly outlining our requirements to measure state council alignment and engagement with SHRM’s overall objectives, SHAPE’s focus has shifted to activities and initiatives which are more strategic in nature. These efforts will allow each affiliated state council to increase its viability and effectiveness, as well as promote the HR profession at the state level. This new program raises the bar of excellence for our affiliates and introduces the EXCEL Awards – a tiered recognition and awards system. 

    SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. The Society serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession. Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 250,000 members in over 140 countries, and more than 575 affiliated chapters. 

    “This recognition is a distinct indication of the state council’s successful partnership with SHRM to serve the networking and professional development needs of human resource professionals and to the advancement of the human resources profession” noted Pamela J. Green, SPHR, Chief U.S. Membership Officer for SHRM. 

    The Nevada State SHRM Council receives a Certificate of Recognition, a specialized banner to display at its meetings and events, and is being recognized in SHRM’s publications and at its conferences. 

    The Council is working on several initiatives to be a leading voice for HR professionals and businesses in the state, including development of the SHRM Legislative Advocacy program, professional development opportunities, certification courses and support for student chapter programs.
