YSU Student HR Group Gets Honored by Society of Human Resources Management

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Youngstown State University student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management recently was honored by the national Society for Human Resource Management.

The chapter was awarded the organization’s 2019-2020 Superior Merit Award for providing superior HR programming and professional development opportunities to its members.

Kimberly Pleva, lecturer and YSU SHRM faculty adviser, said the organization provides students opportunities to gain HR knowledge and to network with practicing HR professionals, including hosting an annual HR Shadow Day event.

“Our events and meetings give students learning experiences that emphasize professionalism, career development and the business skills necessary to become successful in the field of human resource management,” she said.

Added Johnny C. Taylor Jr., SHRM president and chief executive: “Today’s members of our student chapters are the HR leaders of tomorrow. They are the movers and shakers of the future, and we cannot understate the vital role they play in SHRM’s success. The YSU SHRM Chapter is evidence that the future of HR is, indeed, in good hands. I applaud their accomplishments and ability to fiercely move forward during a time of such change and uncertainty in the workplace.”

The Society for Human Resource Management has more than 300,000 members in 165 countries.
