The HR Awards

The HR Awards recognize Northeast Ohio HR professionals who have demonstrated excellence in the field of human resource management. Their achievements and unique skills show they are dedicated to improving themselves and their organizations. The awards honor all levels of HR practitioners, from individuals in local SHRM student chapters to HR executives.

The awards are co-hosted by ERC and CSHRM, two of the area’s leading organizations in the HR industry. Each award category is judged by an independent panel of distinguished representatives from the local HR community.

The following is a letter from  SueAnn Naso, the president of CSHRM and Staffing Solutions Enterprises, and Patrick Perry, the president of ERC:

Congratulations. It is a great honor for ERC and CSHRM to host and honor the human resources leadership in our region. Our inaugural “class” of winners and finalists reads like a “who’s who” of professionals who continue to make a difference through sound, creative and proactive HR management. We are also pleased to recognize the leading faculty adviser and student participant for Student SHRM Chapters in our region who are developing the next generation of HR leadership.

The HR Awards will be an annual event where individual professional achievement in HR will be recognized. We appreciate the tremendous response received in this first year of the program and look forward to ERC and CSHRM working together to showcase individuals making a big difference in their profession and respective organizations.

Last but not least, thank you to The HR Awards committee, judges and, of course, our sponsors. Their hard work and support was critical in launching this regional initiative.
