On Saturday January 8th, the Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA) awarded Barry Nadell its 2004 Excellence in Human Resources Award in a ceremony attended by organization board members and leaders of PIHRA's 16 distinct chapters.
Terry Kolasa, PIHRA's 2004 President, and Mark Gross, PIHRA's 2005 President, awarded the honor to Mr. Nadell indicating that it was "well deserved."
The PIHRA Excellence in Human Resources Award is a prestigious honor bestowed upon one person each year. It is awarded to someone who has given generously to the field of Human Resources. PIHRA members consider award nominees' professional experience and accomplishments and their strategic impact. Award recipients have contributed to the field of human resources by providing unique, special or state-of-the-art HR management and support to employers and their employees through their work, teaching, writing or other personal and professional efforts.
Barry Nadell is the President and co-founder of InfoLink Screening Services, a nationwide provider of employment background checks, drug testing and physical exams.
