CLEVELAND, OH, May, 19, 2017— The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded the Cleveland Society for Human Resource Management (Cleveland SHRM) its prestigious EXCEL Platinum 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.


“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.

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. Cleveland SHRM 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 recognition comes as a result of the hard work and dedication of our nearly 100 volunteers,” said Stephen (Steve) Ligus, President of Cleveland SHRM.  “It is those tireless efforts that have continued to enhance the Cleveland SHRM brand throughout Northeast Ohio.  I am honored to serve with such an incredible group of individuals dedicated to providing a wide-range of programming, professional & educational development and an unwavering commitment to Greater Cleveland.”
