Certification November 2016

Congratulations to Angela Oleson – winner of the 2 free Green Bay Packers/Seattle Seahawks tickets awarded at the WISHRM Annual Conference in Wisconsin Dells.  All SHRM-Certified HR professionals at the conference were eligible to enter the drawing for these tickets - sponsored by the WISHRM State Council.
Angela graduated from UW-Platteville in 2009 with a degree in Business Administration and an emphasis in Human Resources. She received her PHR in August 2015 and her SHRM-CP certification in January 2015.  After college she worked as an HR Manager/Executive Assistant for a cleaning company for 4 years and  now is working at Footlocker.com/Eastbay as an HR Business Partner for the past 2 ½ years.  Angela says she enjoys working in HR as it continues to be challenging and presents something different every day!   Angela is excited about her big win and plans on treating her husband, Erik, to the Packer game.
There are almost 1800 SHRM Certified professionals in Wisconsin as of September 30, 2016.  If you are not already SHRM Certified – consider applying for one of the many SHRM Foundation Certification Scholarships, including the WISHRM Certification Scholarship, to help pay the cost.  Look for more information about these scholarships in Spring 2017.
