The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded the Cross Timbers Society for Human Resource Management its prestigious EXCEL GOLD Award for the chapter’s accomplishments in 2016.

The award aligns individual chapters and state 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. It also recognizes outstanding achievements in chapter operations and a commitment to providing meaningful programs and services to members.

“Advancing the human resources profession is a daily mission at SHRM and this chapter’s outstanding work this year contributed significantly to that goal,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, president and CEO of SHRM. “Recipients of this prestigious award are those who show a strong commitment to advancing the HR profession through service to the community, local networking, and professional development activities.”

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 must be met. The Cross Timbers Chapter will receive recognition in SHRM publications and at conferences, a logo to display on their website and information to share with their members about the significance of this award.

This is the second year in a row the Cross Timbers SHRM has achieved gold status.
