The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2014-2015 Superior Merit Award to the Bridgewater College SHRM student chapter for providing exceptional growth and development opportunities to its student-chapter members.
SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 professional and 20,000 student members in more than 160 countries, the association serves the needs of human resources professionals and advances the interests of the human resources profession.
The Bridgewater chapter earned the award based on the number of activities it completed from April 1, 2014, to March 31, 2015. Recent initiatives that led to the award include the chapter’s focus on addressing the skills gap problem, and its involvement with the Shenandoah Valley professional chapter.
The chapter received a digital logo for use in electronic or print communications and will be recognized in SHRM’s publications and at conferences.
“This is the fourth year in a row for receiving merit recognition and our third year for the Superior Merit Award,” said Dr. Lou Pugliese, assistant professor of economics and business administration at Bridgewater and adviser for the student chapter. “We couldn't be prouder of the student work that goes into this achievement and our relationship with the Shenandoah Valley SHRM professional chapter that gives our SHRM club outstanding support.”
