Recognizing the Best of the Best in Your Agency, we present to you the CSPA Excellence in HR Awards
To support our state agencies' efforts to show appreciation for the outstanding work and initiatives completed by our amazing Human Resource employees, CSPA created the Excellence in HR Awards program as an additional avenue for rewards & recognition within state government. Each year, we host an awards ceremony during our annual conference as a platform for showcasing talent, ingenuity, and great customer service among our peers.
Individual award categories are: HR Unsung Hero, HR Rising Star, and HR Professional of the Year. These categories are open to any eligible employee (based on current CSPA eligibility criteria) currently working in a position of HR responsibility who is an active member and/or contributor of CSPA and:
An applicable candidate would be consistently professional, positive, courteous, friendly, serve as a role model, mentor, lead by example, show initiative, serve above and beyond and consistently work outside normal parameters of job class.
Team award categories are: Innovative Recruitment Strategy, Diversity & Inclusion Initiative, and HR Team of the Year. These categories are open to any eligible teams, groups, or units in which at least one individual is an active member and/or contributor of CSPA having implemented or provided a human resources project/initiative which significantly improved/enhanced the delivery of human resources to customers in a specific area. Said entity should be characterized by initiative, creativity, innovation, and commitment to HR excellence.
