    [Pineville, LA], March 18, 2016 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded the Central Louisiana Society for Human Resource Management (CLSHRM) its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the CLSHRM’s accomplishments in 2015.

    The award is part of the SHRM Affiliate Program for Excellence, which aligns individual chapters and 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.

    “SHRM rewards chapters and councils that demonstrate a strong commitment to advancing the human resources profession through service to the community, local networking and professional development activities,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, president and CEO of SHRM. “Advancing the HR profession is at the heart of what SHRM does and CLSHRM’s work this year helps us further showcase that mission.”

    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 have to be met. CLSHRM will receive recognition in SHRM publications and conferences, a certificate of recognition, and a special banner to display at its meetings and events.

    Accomplishments of CLSHRM for 2015 included maintaining chapter membership above 100 members for consecutive years and serving as the best local resource for Human Resources professionals for networking, information, professional development, and continued support of excellence. CLSHRM hosted the first-annual Cenla Career Fair, which was the largest job fair held in Central Louisiana last year.
