City Receives Two Awards From National Associations

    The city of Las Vegas has received two awards from national associations for human resources excellence and for being a leader in the field.

    The Public Sector HR Association (PSHRA) has recognized the city as a Western Region International Public Management Association for Human Resources Agency Award of Excellence winner, and the National Public Employer Labor Relations Association (NPELRA) has presented a Pacesetter Award to the city.

    PSHRA, a 117-year-old association, recognized the city for overall quality, accomplishments and contributions that exceed the normal operation of a good government human resource program.

    The NPELRA Pacesetter Award is presented to organizations demonstrating particularly innovative leadership in public sector labor relations. The Pacesetter Award recognizes those who have successfully developed a new tool or technique for use in resolving conflicts, addressing new challenges, or assisting others in their growth in public sector labor relations or human resources. Pacesetters are role models who serve as resources to others in the field.

    The city was recognized with the Pacesetter Award for its thematic goal of enhancing employment development opportunities for employees. As many employees reach retirement age, the city has worked to ensure that employees moving up the ranks in the city have training and advancement opportunities.
