Lakeshore Area Human Resources Association Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

    June 14, 2019

    Manitowoc, Wi., June 14, 2019 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Lakeshore Human Resources Association (LAHRA) its prestigious EXCEL Gold 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 LAHRA. Through their courage and leadership, LAHRA 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 Gold 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. LAHRA 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.
