    March 25, 2016

    LAS VEGAS, NV, March 25, 2016 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded the Nevada State SHRM Council its prestigious EXCEL Silver Award for the COUNCIL’s accomplishments in 2015.

    The award is part of the SHRM Affiliate Program for Excellence, which aligns individual chapters and councils’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that enhance the human resources profession.

    “SHRM rewards chapters and councils that demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing the human resources profession through service to the community, local networking and professional development activities,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, president and CEO of SHRM. “Advancing the HR profession is at the heart of what SHRM does and STATE COUNCIL’s work this year helps us further showcase that mission.”

    The EXCEL award can be earned at four levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum, and each level has a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments that have to be met. Nevada State SHRM Council will receive recognition in SHRM publications and conferences, a certificate of recognition, and a special banner to display at its meetings and events.

    The Nevada State SHRM Council is comprised of knowledgeable experts in the field of human resources working within our communities. They are educators, attorneys, hotel and banking executives and business owners. The primary mission of the Council is to provide a forum for chapters to discuss common issues, problems and concerns, and to share ideas and successes.
