FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Travelers Rest, S.C., November 27, 2018 — Quality Business Solutions, Inc.’s (QBS) Payroll/Benefits/HR Manager Angelia Simpson was recently appointed to serve as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Certification Director for the South Carolina SHRM State Council beginning January 1, 2019.
In this role, Simpson will be responsible for communicating the importance of having HR technical expertise and business competencies to the most influential workers in the workplace (HR professionals), encouraging the elevation of the HR profession by convincing business leaders of the importance of being SHRM certified, be a resource to HR professionals in SC to find the appropriate means to become certified and stay certified, and contribute to more informed workforces and better-quality work environments in SC.
“Increasingly, SHRM certification is becoming a ‘required’ educational component of job postings rather than a ‘preferred’,” said Simpson. “Top executives are realizing the role HR can play in developing a strategy to develop and retain an organization’s most valuable resource, its employees. As someone who has always been passionate about the value of human resources and the power of leadership, I honored to be taking on this new position for SHRM at the state level.”
SHRM Certification is behavioral competency based and relevant to real world work situations. There are more than 113,000 SHRM Certified Professionals worldwide. HR Professionals who have received their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP have shown their dedication to life-long learning and expertise in all aspects of HR including the important, strategic role HR plays in the overall success of an organization.
Simpson has served in several Board positions for the Piedmont Area Human Resources Chapter in Greenwood for the past 12 years. She also served 5 years as SHRM Foundation Director for SC SHRM State Council (her current role) and as a member of “The A Team” — SHRM members who advocate for SHRM-backed legislation to our Congressional representatives.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest HR professional society, representing 300,000 members in more than 165 countries. For nearly seven decades, the Society has been the leading provider of resources serving the needs of HR professionals and advancing the practice of human resource management.
