    Silver Exel Award Winner
    SHRM recently awarded Northern Alaska SHRM Chapter its prestigious Silver EXCEL Award for the NASHRM'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 NASHRM. “The Silver EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by NASHRM—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. NASHRM 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.
