2023 SC SHRM State Conference 

SC SHRM State Council Awarded

For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces 

May 5, 2022 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded South Carolina SHRM State Council its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the South Carolina SHRM State Council’s accomplishments in 2021. 

SC SHRM’s submission for 2021 highlighted several successful initiatives, including its commitment to increase dual Chapter/SHRM membership by encouraging SC SHRM State Conference attendees to join a chapter if they were not already a part of one.  SC SHRM also partnered with Junior Achievement of the Carolinas for a virtual career fair including a virtual booth, videos of HR professionals telling their HR journey and live chat with SC SHRM State Council members to answer questions the attendees had.  The Council held its leadership conference virtually in 2021, its goal to educate Chapter leaders about SHRM, SC SHRM, their roles, and how to run a successful local SHRM chapter.

“We have the absolute best HR professionals in South Carolina serving in leadership positions on the SC SHRM State Council and as chapter presidents who serve on the council during their presidency.  I couldn’t be prouder to receive the Platinum Excel Award for a 2nd year in a row,” said SC SHRM State Director, Teresa Vaughn, SHRM-SCP, VP of Human Resources for Johnson & Johnson, Inc. headquartered in Mt. Pleasant, SC.  “It is a true honor to receive this recognition from SHRM and we look forward to celebrating these exceptional accomplishments at our annual state conference in Myrtle Beach in September”.
