The 2015 Pinnacle Award Winning Chapter of the El Paso Society for Human Resource Management was originally established in April 1954 as the Personnel Managers Association of El Paso. The organization evolved over the years and transitioned through the American Society of Personnel Administrators (ASPA) and into the El Paso Society for Human Resource Management. The chapter was affiliated with the National Society for Human Resource Management in 1978.


Dear Member,

Our focus for the month of May is Mental Health in the Workplace. As this unprecedented and challenging time continues to unfold, the need to acknowledge, address, and have grace toward others, and ourselves, is significant.

It is hard to escape news updates about coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The constant headlines may make some people anxious. The workforce cannot be healthy, balanced, or successful if their companies do not support their mental wellness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), here’s what stress during an infectious disease outbreak can look like:

  • Fear and worry about your own health and the health of your loved ones
  • Changes in sleeping or eating habits
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
  • Worsening of chronic health problems
  • Increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs

As HR professionals we may not be able to control the virus, but we can help control our workforce’s emotional reaction to it. Our guest speaker Licensed Professional Counselor, Celeste Nevarez is the Chief of Clinical Services at Emergence Health Network. Our topic “The State of Mental Health in Workplace” which will help us help us navigate through helping our workforce cope with COVID-19 with some smart strategies.

Take care,

Art Gloria
El Paso SHRM President, 2020

With more than 500 SHRM chapters, the Top 25 Fundraising Chapters represent the top five percent of all SHRM chapters. These chapters have the highest yearly contributions, including gifts from the chapter plus recognition credits donated by individuals or companies on behalf of the chapter.

The award aligns individual chapters’ and state councils’ activities with SHRM’s aspirations for the HR profession. The award recognizes accomplishments and strategic activities and initiatives that enhance the human resource profession.

“SHRM exists because of our great chapters and state councils like EPSHRM which work tirelessly to help advance the important mission of the HR profession through initiatives that support our future, build inclusive organizations and focus on workplace readiness,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “Recognizing you as a recipient of this prestigious award is just one way to show that SHRM supports you and that we are by your side step by step as we move Together Forward.” 

The SHRM Learning System Champion status is a recognition of our local chapter's work to elevate the HR profession through professional development and HR knowledge among members, gained from SHRM certification.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Excel Award recognizes local chapters and state council achievements in serving HR Professionals, Advancing the HR Profession and Enhancing the SHRM Community.  Awards are earned at four levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.  Each level reflects a prescribed set of requirements and accomplishments.  For 2015, our El Paso Chapter was recognized with the Silver Excel Award.
