    SHRM recently awarded RI SHRM its prestigious 2021 Platinum Excel Award for RI SHRM's accomplishments in 2020. 

    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 impact on the world of work can be traced back to the dedication and hard work of our chapters and state councils like RI 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 RI SHRM - it’s also a recognition of the grit it took to do it.”

    A special thank you to everyone that participated in Restore, Rebuild, Reconvene event.
