Governor Proclaims First Human Resources Week in Hawaii
Governor David Ige’s office has issued a proclamation designating the first Human Resources Week in Hawaii. Human Resources Week in Hawaii is the third week of November, this year being November 18, through Friday, November 22, 2019. Human Resources Week recognizes the more than 5,500 dedicated human resources professionals throughout Hawaii who provide critical support to employers and their workforce.
The Friday of Human Resources Week, November 22, was designated as Human Resources Appreciation Day to celebrate and thank HR professionals for their work and dedication.
Human Resources Week was proposed by Hawaii Employers Council, a nonprofit employer association providing strategic consulting on human resources and labor relations matters to more than 800 employers across the state.
“HR professionals play an important role in supporting an organization’s most important asset — its people,” said Clayton Kamida, president and CEO of Hawaii Employers Council. “At the helm of recruitment and hiring, training and development, benefits, compensation, employee relations and organizational initiatives, HR teams are the backbone of a skilled workforce, which contributes to increased productivity and profitability and a thriving local economy.”
