Workplace Excellence Awards
were founded by San Diego SHRM in 2000, initially designed to recognize
excellence in HR leadership. Workplace Excellence goes beyond an employee
satisfaction survey, to demonstrating a link between HR practice and a positive
impact to a business outcome.
In 2013, San Diego SHRM, in
partnership with the San Diego Union Tribune and Workplace Dynamics, broadened
the application process to incorporate an employment engagement-driven
award. The addition, increased employer participation and visibility into
the award program, as well as, validated the link between effective HR
practices and satisfied employees.
In 2014, our partnership
continues as we celebrate 14 years of Award and HR industry evolution, we
integrate emerging HR and business innovation, and we serve our community
through honoring those who serve.
