Lincoln, NE (PRWEB) April 20, 2006
Meat and poultry processors face many tough human capital issues today, and business leaders expect Human Resource departments to provide strategic directions and solutions to address these concerns.
The National Provisioner, a publication of Stagnito Communications (an Ascend Media company) that serves meat and poultry processors, is launching in conjunction with Ameritas Group Dental and Eye Care a new “HREVOLUTION AWARDS” program to recognize and celebrate HR departments that demonstrate originality and creativity in responding to today’s human capital challenges.
Candidates for the 2006 HREVOLUTION AWARDS may be HR departments for meat and poultry processors that have spearheaded innovative solutions, introduced new cost-effective benefits programs that delivered greater value, fostered greater communication with employees, or developed quality employee recruitment, retention or rewards program that netted significant results.
“HR departments help processors tackle human capital problems effectively every day, and we want to recognize and reward their successes,” says Barbara Young, editor-in-chief of The National Provisioner.
“We are looking for HR departments that are employing best practices, effectively solving human capital issues, and improving the work environment for employees at all levels for their organizations,” says Kenneth VanCleave, senior vice president of Ameritas Group.
Awards will be given to HR departments at small, medium, large and mega meat and poultry processors in the U.S., for programs in place since January 2005.
The American Meat Institute (AMI) and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) support the HREVOLUTION AWARDS. Entrants do not need to be subscribers to The National Provisioner, insured by Ameritas Group, or members of AMI or USPOULTRY.
The deadline for all entries is June 2, 2006. Winners will be announced in October.
