The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently awarded SBHRA its prestigious Platinum EXCEL Award for the year 2016. The award is part of SHRM’s Affiliate Program for Excellence, which recognizes a strong commitment to advancing the human resources profession through service to the community, local networking and professional development activities.


SBHRA submitted a winning combination of 2016 initiatives:
  • The HR Minute: Produced 3-minute weekly spot on a local radio business program, presented by SBHRA member volunteers who discussed salient HR topics, offering a business community resource on HR knowledge and labor law.
  • Legislative Labor Law Roundtable: Grass roots lobbying with local State Senators, building relationship and ongoing dialogue to discuss how proposed legislation affect constituents and local and state businesses.
  • Emerging Professionals: Developed the Emerging Professionals program, implemented by alumni of the UCSB SHRM Student Chapter, to produce informative educational sessions and mentor relationships between experienced HR professionals and emerging HR professionals.
  • Workforce Readiness: Partnered with local businesses to prepare college and high school students for workforce entry though events focused on interview prep and skills, resume building, and employment discussion.

Congratulations to the SBHRA Board of Directors and the entire membership for advancing the HR profession and building a stronger community in 2016!
