Fort Worth HR AwardedFor Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces
Fort Worth, TX, June 11, 2019—SHRM, the Society for Human Resource Management, recently awarded Fort Worth HR (FWHR) its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the FWHR’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 FWHR. Through their courage and leadership, FWHR 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.”
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. FWHR 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.
Earning the EXCEL Platinum Award takes the efforts of many people, including both chapter professionals and board members. FWHR’s initiatives included updating its bylaws, collaborating with DallasHR on a pre-conference HRSouthwest event, expanding its relationship with the community through several activities, and increasing its PEG engagement.
