TSHRM Awarded for Elevating Human Resources, Improving Workplace

Raleigh, NC May 26, 2020 — SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) recently awarded Triangle Society for HR Management (TSHRM) its prestigious EXCEL Platinum Award for the TSHRM accomplishments in 2019.

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.

“So much of SHRM’s impact on the world of work can be traced back to the dedication and hard work of our chapters and state councils like TSHRM. These leaders took the initiative and drove changes to make workplaces where employers and employees can thrive together,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “The PLATINUM EXCEL Award is not only a celebration of the great work done by TSHRM - it’s also a recognition of the grit it took to do it.”

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. TSHRM 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.

COVID-19 Resources

There is no shortage of conversation around COVID-19 and how employers are struggling to navigate through the information, new guidance, and legalities. TSHRM has been looking & collecting as much information as we can to help provide a better value add during these current circumstances. Please see below for all that we have gathered so far!


There is a lot of great info and guidance from OSHA and the CDC on returning back to work (see links below). If helpful, please share with your networks!



Interim Business Guidance for Businesses and Employers CDC developed guidance t o help employers decrease the spread of COVID-19 and lower the impact of COVID-19 on the workplace. This interim guidance may help prevent workplace exposures to COVID-19 in non-healthcare settings.


OneDigital has created a Coronavirus Advisory Hubthat provides HR and business leaders with practical solutions that are actionable, timely and helpful in shaping workforce decision-making and is sharing that information with TSHRM members. Below are a few of the most popular resources:

  • [ON-DEMAND WEBINAR] Employee Mental Health & Wellbeing – actionable ways to support your employees’ mental health and wellbeing
  • [FLYER] Maintaining Mental Wellbeing During a Quarantine
  • [BLOG] The Health Impacts of Financial Stability on Your Workforce
  • [TOOLKIT] Leading Through Crisis Employer Toolkit This toolkit provides resources that will help businesses maintain high-performing benefits, strategic human resources practices and financial wellbeing while putting an emphasis on employee experience.


Gallagher has been diligently working to compile and consolidate all the information on our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Information Hub with a wealth of information and guidance for HR and employee benefits.
