New York City SHRM Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

New York, NY June 5, 2019 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded New York City (NYC) SHRM its prestigious EXCEL Platinum 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 NYC SHRM. Through their
courage and leadership, NYC SHRM 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 Platinum Excel Award is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps this chapter has taken this past year.”

NYC SHRM is being recognized for several initiatives, including increasing and retaining membership, partnering successfully with other organizations, and ongoing veterans’ initiatives. Additionally, NYC SHRM began facilitating an annual conference in 2018, attracting more than 400 of New York City’s HR professionals to connect, learn and grow with NYC SHRM. NYC SHRM strives to be the preeminent New York City professional human resources association, connecting and advancing practitioners, businesses, educators, students, and related providers.
