The NEHRA Awards of Excellence Program is part of our ongoing effort to drive HR excellence. Each year, we recognize individuals and companies in the HR field for their outstanding contribution in areas such as innovation, leadership and volunteerism. The awards ceremony will take place the evening of October 1, 2015 as part of NEHRA's Annual Conference. We will be awarding the following:
John D. Erdlen Five Star Award
The John D. Erdlen Five Star Award is presented to an individual who has consistently demonstrated excellence in Human Resources through their leadership efforts. Nominees must have a minimum of 10 years of HR experience and made significant contributions to the profession. NEHRA membership is not a requirement to be selected.
Volunteer of the Year Awards
The Volunteer of the Year Award is given to a NEHRA member who has consistently demonstrated through their volunteer efforts a desire to impact the profession and support the values and visions of the Association.
