I’ve seen firsthand how these leaders drive meaningful changes to build 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 not only honors chapter accomplishments in 2020, but it’s also a testament to the hard work it took to get there.”

Northshore Society for Human Resource Management (NSHRM) 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.
