HR Virginia & Several Chapters Awarded for Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplaces

SHRM recently awarded HR Virginia its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the state council’s accomplishments in 2023.

The EXCEL award recognizes outstanding achievements in State Council operations and a commitment to providing meaningful programs and services to HR professionals in your state. It is also awarded to 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 HR Virginia. “The Platinum Excel Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by HR Virginia—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 by state councils and chapters at four levels: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. Each level has a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments that must be met. Awarded councils and chapters will receive recognition in SHRM publications and at conferences, a logo to display on their websites, and information to share with members about the significance of the award.

In addition to the state council honors, we are thrilled to acknowledge several Virginia chapters who also received EXCEL accolades for their  accomplishments in 2023:






Congratulations to all our EXCEL award winners! HR Virginia is immensely proud of the hard work our chapters and volunteer leaders put in to elevate and support Virginia’s HR community.
