For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces


Cleveland, OH, May 26, 2020 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Cleveland SHRM its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the chapter’s accomplishments in 2019.


The EXCEL award is given to state councils and chapters to recognize major accomplishments, strategic activities, and tactical initiatives that elevate the profession of human resources.  


“So much of SHRM’s impact on the world of work can be traced back to the dedication and hard work of our chapters like Cleveland SHRM. These leaders took the initiative and drove changes to make workplaces where employers and employees can thrive together,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “The Platinum EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by Cleveland SHRM—it’s also a recognition of the grit it took to do it.”

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. Cleveland 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.
