About the HR Excellence Program

Developed in 2001 by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce (NACC) and the Middle Tennessee Society
for Human Resource Management (MT|SHRM), the HR Excellence Program recognizes organizations in
Middle Tennessee with outstanding Human Resources programs.

If you want to leverage the power of your workforce to help you reach your business goals, the HR Excellence
Program is for you. While many prominent Middle Tennessee area companies participate for the prestige
of receiving top honors, many more businesses—large and small—participate in order to learn about
best practices and reap the benefits of feedback, guidance and support. Participation gives you access
to advice, inspiration and tools that will empower you to overcome even the toughest employment,
retention, compensation, and workplace quality challenges. Check out this promotional video for a quick
overview of the program and our online information session for helpful tips in preparation for your successful
submittal of a thorough and comprehensive application.
