Champions of HR for Excellence

AME Champions of HR for Excellence will be focused on meeting the needs of those who develop talent strategies that support enterprise excellence. 

AME Champions of HR for Excellence will support Human Resources and those with whom they partner with a more dedicated focus on the requirements for achieving stronger people and culture development. The benefit of this group will be to allow members to benchmark other organizations, network with others who share similar challenges, and increase the momentum of talent strategies to drive success. All AME Champions Club members will have access to the developing portal of resources that is created through benchmarking activities.
