The Human Resources Management Excellence Awards were established in 1998 by The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation’s Department of Management to encourage and recognize exceptional progress and achievement in the field of human resource management among area organizations.
“These awards are given annually to an individual or HR department having a profound impact on their organization’s performance through demonstrated commitment, innovation and leadership in the human resource function,” said Dr. Clinton Longenecker, UT professor of management and chair of the Awards Selection Committee.
Nominations are being accepted through Sunday, March 30. Anyone can nominate any organization, including his or her own.
To nominate an organization, email firstname.lastname@example.org the following information:
• Nominator’s name, title, name of nominator’s organization and contact information;
• Name of the nominated human resource department along with contact information for someone within that HR department; and
• A paragraph describing why this HR department is deserving of this recognition.
Nominated organizations will be contacted and asked to provide additional information.
Winners must have at least one designated HR practitioner; be actively involved in the continued development and improvement of their organization’s HR function; make significant contributions to improve organizational performance through their collective HR efforts; and provide vision, guidance and leadership in developing or improving the major HR practices in their organization.
The awards will be presented Tuesday, May 13, at the Toledo Area Human Resource Association meeting in Perrysburg.
Previous Human Resource Management Award for Excellence winners include Spangler Candy Co., SSOE Group, Mercy Health Partners, Owens Corning and Sauder Woodworking.
