    South Carolina SHRM State Council Awarded For Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

    ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 24, 2024 — SHRM recently awarded South Carolina SHRM State Council its prestigious EXCEL PLATINUM Award for the State Council’s accomplishments in 2023.

    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 South Carolina SHRM State Council. “The PLATINUM EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by South Carolina SHRM State Council—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. The South Carolina SHRM State Council 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.

    To receive this award, the SC SHRM State Council accomplished the following in 2023:

    • We have completed our Dual Membership initiative.

    • We partnered with Junior Achievement and hosted a booth during the JA Inspire Career Fair to introduce students to Human Resources.
