Meredith HR Organization Earns Recognition

Meredith College’s student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is one of 10 organizations to earn a national 2008-09 Outstanding Student Chapter Award.

The awards, presented by the national organization, recognize SHRM student chapters whose programs, activities and levels of participation during the academic year distinguish them from other chapters.

The Meredith College Student Chapter led a number of community oriented projects, with a specific focus on assisting individuals that were hit by the recession and job loss. They first participated in an “Employer Resource Workshop” by educating employers on the advantages of hiring people with disabilities and understanding the Americans with Disabilities Act. Next, they conducted fundraisers for the “Dress for Success” program and held a clothing drive for the Healing Place of Wake County. Not only did chapter members showcase great leadership and organizational skills by conducting these projects, but these projects also emphasized to the chapter members how they can have an impact on our community through volunteerism.

All SHRM student chapters are eligible to apply for the award, provided that the chapter receives a Superior Merit Award for that current academic year. The Outstanding Student Chapter Award is given in recognition of significant activities within the following areas: promotion of certification, campus/community service, innovation/technology, programming/education, and recruitment.
