NUHRA Awarded Platinum Excel Award

    May 17, 2023

       The Northern Utah Human Resource Association Awarded
    For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces


    Layton, Utah, May 17, 2023 — SHRM recently awarded the Northern Utah Human Resource Association (NUHRA) its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the chapter’s accomplishments in 2022.

    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.  

    “SHRM’s impact on the world of work is due to the dedication and efforts of our chapters and state councils like NUHRA. “The Platinum EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by NUHRA—it’s also recognition of their focus and determination to cause the effect to make great workplaces”, said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president, and chief executive officer of SHRM.  “Their HR leadership is exemplary.”

    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. NUHRA 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.

    Each year, NUHRA strives to serve the HR community by providing the educational resources it needs. NUHRA’s membership has grown as it seeks quality programming for its members and has offered certification credits at each meeting. In addition to professional development, NUHRA is committed to the future of the profession. NUHRA hosts a golf tournament each year to raise funds for HR student scholarships.
