The University of Toledo College of Business Administration recently recognized the winners of the Human Resource Management Award for Excellence.

This year’s three winners are HR departments from E.S. Wagner Co., Luther Home of Mercy and TNS-NA.

The award was established in 1998 to recognize outstanding employers that demonstrate commitment, innovation and leadership in the field of HR management.

Awards were presented during the Toledo Area Human Resource Association year-end banquet at the Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg.

“Amidst this very challenging economy, this year’s winners are doing an outstanding job of creating company practices that improve personal performances,” said Dr. Clint Longenecker, chair of the HR award selection committee and UT professor of management.

The winners received commemorative awards, and their names will be inscribed on a plaque displayed in the UT College of Business Administration.

The awards ceremony included remarks from Longenecker; Scott Gearig, principal of the Mergis Group; Drs. Laurence Fink, Dale Dwyer and Sheri Caldwell of the UT College of Business Administration; Don Reiber, UT assistant professor of communication; and Jack Hollister, president of the Employer’s Association.
