Sauk Columbia SHRM Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

Baraboo, WI, August 15, 2019 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Sauk Columbia SHRM (SC 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 SC SHRM. Through their courage and leadership, SC 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 the Platinum Excel Award is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps this SC SHRM 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. SC SHRM 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.

    Welcome to the Sauk Columbia SHRM! 

    Sauk Columbia SHRM (SC SHRM) is an organization made up of HR professionals from these two area counties.  This group is focused on staying educated, informed of ever changing regulations and in touch with other peers in the field.  Meeting on the second Wednesday of every month, from September through May, this group gathers to hear from an array of speakers to further enhance the professional development of its members.  In addition to the speakers, during each meeting, time is allotted to give members the chance to network and share ideas over an excellent lunch at Monk’s at the Wilderness.  Outside of the monthly meeting, SC SHRM also arranges several fun social events throughout the year to meet up with members and offer a chance to relax with those that share similar professional experiences.

    SC SHRM prides itself on providing a welcoming environment to anyone with any type of background in the field.  From business owners, to heads of large HR departments with decades of experience, to students just starting out studying the field, SC SHRM recognizes that all members can learn something new and have something valuable to contribute.
