SHRS Receives Governor's Award

    March 17, 2013


    The Sooner HR Society Workforce Development Initiative included partnering with the Central Oklahoma Workforce Investment Board to establish methodology for creating a “Work Ready Certificate” for individuals to share with prospective employers.  The Sooner HR Society chapter selected work experience that demonstrated appropriate skills and it designed, reviewed and approved curriculum course work.  As a result of our chapter’s voluntary hours and commitment, our chapter was recognized with the 2012 Business Leaders of the Year Award.  This award included a Governor’s Commendation for its business driven leadership that it provided to the workforce development system.  The Governor’s Commendation stated that SHRS helped the productivity of the economy and helped our state be a better place to live. The commendation was signed by the Governor, Mary Fallin and was presented to our chapter at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
