Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 19, 2008
HR Search Firm, Inc., an executive search and professional services firm focused exclusively on the human resources profession, will sponsor one of the seven Impact Awards given each year by HR Houston. The prestigious annual awards recognize top Houston area companies for their excellence in human resources practices and programs.
HR Search Firm will sponsor the Recruiting and Retention Impact Award, which honors a company that demonstrates exemplary recruiting and retention strategies and tactics. Programs focusing on a broad range of retention and/or recruiting methods that contribute to a company's bottom line are of particular interest to judges.
"It's a privilege to be directly involved with the Impact Awards as HR Houston continues to raise the bar in recognizing companies and HR work groups that demonstrate innovative best practices in human resources," said Kathy Rapp, managing director and owner of HR Search Firm, Houston. "Recruiting and retention are such critical components of a successful human resources function. As a recruiting and professional services firm, it's especially exciting to recognize companies that excel in this area."
Awards will be presented May 13, at the Impact Awards Banquet - a key event of the 17th Annual Gulf Coast Symposium on Human Resources Issues. As a part of the two-day symposium, Rapp will present a professional development session on, "How to Manage Your Career in HR."
"As HR professionals, we tend to get caught up in everyone else's development, and it's easy to lose sight of the importance of managing our own careers," says Rapp. "This workshop is designed to motivate attendees to take an active role in their own careers. It will provide actionable information about what companies are looking for in HR professionals, what it means to be a true business partner, what professionals need to focus on to ultimately be successful and hiring trends in HR."
Rapp's presentation is scheduled for May 13 at 3:45 p.m. For more information about the Gulf Coast Symposium and the Impact Awards, visit: http://www.hrhouston.org. The deadline for submitting Impact Award nominations is Friday, Feb. 29, 2008.
