The HRPA Designation Excellence Awards recognize individual HR excellence at three HRPA designation levels:

Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) of the Year recognizes outstanding work at the foundational level, including adding value to meet organizational priorities; business knowledge and partnering; and innovative thinking.

Certified Human Resources Leader (CHRL) of the Year recognizes an individual who has excelled within the HR function and across the organization by partnering with other business functions to achieve bottom-line performance.

Certified Human Resources Executive (CHRE) of the Year recognizes an HR executive who has demonstrated outstanding leadership including creating and implementing a people-driven strategy that quantifiably contributes to the achievement of the organization’s objectives.

In today’s organizations, people are the primary source of sustainable competitive advantage and HR professionals design and execute people-driven strategies that help create organizational success. The HRPA Designation Excellence Awards will highlight real examples of how HR professionals can develop and execute the innovative and effective strategies that add huge measurable value to organizations.

Nominations for the 2016 HRPA Designation Excellence Awards close on conclusion of the 2016 HRPA Annual Conference, January 22, 2016 and HRPA members will choose winners by voting for their choice of the CHRP, CHRL or CHRE professional of the year.
