October has been designated as “HR Awareness” Month by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
In his proclamation, the governor recognizes the contributions made by human resource professionals in the state of Texas. These contributions include recruiting new talent, compliance with labor laws, educating Texans about health and safety, workplace ethics and much more.

“I’d like to commend the dedicated human resources professionals in the state for their part in making this one of the most productive and vibrant economies in the nation. Whether a specialist in workforce development, compensation or recruiting, or a generalist called upon to drive all aspects of HR, Texas SHRM salutes the champions of change and influential human capital productivity.” – Mike Kahn, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, state director, Texas SHRM
