Northern Utah Human Resource Association

April 2014

In the last few weeks, we have been notified by SHRM that we accomplished some pretty great things in 2013:

  • SHRM Foundation Chapter Champion
  • Membership Superstar
  • Platinum Excel Award

We were recognized as a SHRM Foundation chapter champion, which means we did an excellent job of fundraising for the SHRM Foundation.  This year, we have made it our goal to do our best to educate people on what the SHRM Foundation is as well as some of the benefits they provide to us. 

We reached Membership Superstar status!  This means that our chapter grew by over 4% in 2013.  Way to go!  Thanks to our excellent members spreading the word about our great programming, which is usually pre-approved for HRCI credit, we are continuing to grow.

Finally, we received the highest award a chapter can receive, the Platinum Excel Award.  Each chapter is required to fulfil certain objectives and each year we choose to go above and beyond to add value to our membership and our community.  It is paying off.

If you are a member of NUHRA, thank you for being so great!  If you aren't, join today and see why we are such a great chapter.

Register today for the annual NUHRA Half Day Conference on May 15, 2014.  RSVPs are due by May 1.



March 2014

Wow!  The year is already almost 1/4 of the way over!  It is nice to know we can look back and already have some great things to say about 2014.

We just finished our 2nd annual Diversity and Inclusion month, which featured great newsletter articles, conversation via social media, a generation in the workplace table topic at the luncheon, and a luncheon speaker who presented on disabilities in the workplace.

For those who missed February's luncheon, we were able to hear all about disability etiquette, more about accomodating disabilities, and why it's a good idea to do so.

In March, we are scheduled for another UALD update.  Last year's was excellent, so this is one month you will not want to miss.  Not only is the topic of interest, but this will be a breakfast meeting at Jeremiah's.  It will be our only breakfast meeting this year.

See you bright and early!



February 2014

February is 'NUHRA's annual Diversity and Inclusion month.  You will find excellent articles on the topic in our newsletter and on our Facebook page; we also have an excellent speaker lined up for February's luncheon.  We invite you to share articles you've found and liked on the topic on our Facebook page so that others can benefit and join in on the discussion.

Thank you for remembering to renew your membership for 2014!  This would be an excellent month to invite a friend or colleague to join NUHRA.

Next month will feature a breakfast meeting with a UALD update. 

See you there!
