The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) announced the winners of this year’s Pinnacle Awards on November 16 during its 2012 Leadership Conference at the Gaylord National Harbor Hotel & Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Created in 1991, the award is the highest achievement SHRM state councils and chapters can attain, and it honors programs that exceed the standard activities of SHRM affiliates in enhancing the creation of effective HR management.
As a volunteer leader traveling around the state, I often come across HR professionals who ask me, “Just what is HR Florida?” The quick answer is HR Florida represents over 13,000 members as the state affiliate for the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) and serves as the link between the members, the local chapters, and SHRM. As the global voice of our profession, SHRM sets the agenda.
Welcome to 2013! Are we having fun yet? I know that it’s traditional to start a new year with all sorts of hope, cheer, and optimism. But let’s face it. 2013 is going to be one tough set of 365 days, and I wouldn’t be doing you any favors by pretending it won’t be. Sorry.
