    SHRM Guam Chapter Receives Prestigious SHRM Award

     For Advancing the HR Profession

    Hagatna, Guam, June 19 2017 - The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded the Guam Chapter its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the Chapter’s accomplishments in 2016.

    The award aligns the SHRM Guam chapter’s activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession.  The award recognizes accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that enhance the human resources profession.

    “Advancing the human resources profession is a daily mission at SHRM and this chapter’s outstanding work this year contributed significantly to that goal,” said Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, president and CEO of SHRM.  “Recipients of this prestigious award are those who show a strong commitment to advancing the HR profession through service to the community, local networking, and professional development activities.”

    The EXCEL award can be earned at four levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, and each level has a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments that must be met.  SHRM Guam Chapter has earned and received recognition at the platinum level.

    In 2016, 1,286 of Guam’s HR professionals and leaders attended nine SHRM Guam Chapter sponsored training/seminar events to include monthly breakfast briefings and the SHRM Guam Annual Conference.  Attendees learned about HR Strategic Planning; Attract, Hire & Retain; Finance for Non-Financial Managers; Employment Law Update; Update on EEOC Laws; USDOL Wage and Hour Division Updates; and Keeping Employees Motivated.  SHRM Guam Chapter also fundraised and donated $5,000 to the SHRM Foundation to support professional development activities for HR professionals.  For the first time since 2014, SHRM Guam held an HR certification study group and subsidized the cost of the books and the facilitator which resulted in several HR professionals passing the SHRM-CP certification exam.  SHRM Guam continues its financial commitment to the UOG SHRM Student Chapter to support student attendance at the SHRM Annual Conference.
