INFORMED. CONNECTED. INFLUENTIAL.
HRAGC is proud to recognize its amazing members for all that they do. In recognition of their substantial efforts, HRAGC instituted two recognition programs- The HRAGC Impact Award and The HRAGC League of Legends. Learn more below about the HRAGC Impact Aard and its worthy recipients below.
The HRAGC Impact award was established to recognize an HRAGC member for his/her contribution to championing the mission of HRAGC while volunteering their time, contributing their expertise, advancing HRAGC awareness and serving to engage and develop HR professionals.
This is award is presented annually to an individual HRAGC member who is not serving on the HRAGC Board at the time of receiving the award.
