The HR Best Practice Award is awarded to a company that demonstrates the importance and positive impact strong HR practices can have within an organization. The purpose of the award is to recognize an organization that aligns successful HR programs and practices with the company’s business objectives.
The HR Best Practice award is for any size business, and extends across all industries. The company must employ and support one National SHRM member on staff.
A panel of three judges will select the HR Best Practice Award recipient. The panel will consist of the Best Practices Chair, the Communications and Awards Chair, and the Immediate Past State Council Director. The application process and recipient selection are overseen by the Best HR Practice Award Committee.
Each judge will review and rate the applicant on a scale from 1 to 10 with 1 being the lowest marks for that criterion, and 10 being the highest. The winner of the HR Best Practice Award will be the applicant with the highest cumulative point total.
The HR Best Practice Award will be presented annually at the Arkansas Human Resource State Conference & Expo.
