    Grundy Will HR Association Awarded

    For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces


    Joliet, IL, May 28, 2019 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Grundy Will HR Association its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the Chapter’s accomplishments in 2018, its second consecutive year of success at this level.


    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 success in shaping better workplaces—where employers and employees can thrive together— is owed to the hard work of our chapters and state councils such as Grundy Will HR Association. Through their courage and leadership, Grundy Will HR Association is driving true, measurable progress toward the healthy, productive, and dynamic workplaces of tomorrow,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “Awarding this Platinum Excel Award is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps this chapter has taken this past year.”

    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.
