GBR SHRM recognizes Theresa Lockwood

Outstanding HR Professional of the Year Award 2014

Theresa's passion and dedication to the HR profession has been evident in her commitment to GBR SHRM over the past  15 years.  The current board of directors stands not only on her shoulders, but of many others as well.  Theresa has made significant contributions to helping build the membership of GBR SHRM over the years, including this current year.

The contributions made as a member of the board of directors for eight years cannot be discounted.  Theresa is a wealth of knowledge and can always be counted on to share her historical knowledge and make recommendations.  Not once has she been called upon to assist in any capacity and she declined.  For any board member new to their role, knowing you have someone you can count on to provide perspective cannot be overstated.

Theresa continues to be a valuable asset to her organization by providing HR leadership to what was once a company without any human resources representation.  Because of her leadership, BRPT Lake has grown significantly in the past ten years developing programs, salary structures and the implementation of HR technology.  She has and continues to be instrumental in the employer brand of her company making it the employer of choice in its field for new graduates in the southeast United States.

The result of Theresa's work ethic and passion for accomplishment at BRPT Lake earned her company recognition and listed 12th in  Baton Rouge Business Report's "Best Places to Work."

Greater Baton Rouge Society for Human Resource Management is now a SHRM Preferred Provider for the new SHRM-CPTM and SHRM-SCPTM Certifications!

Greater Baton Rouge Society for Human Resource Management is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP.
