Stevens received the honor at the organization’s annual conference in Orlando. The award “recognizes a human resources leader who has advanced the profession in a significant way." Stevens’ nomination application highlighted her creation of the county’s Management University program in 2015. She has worked for the Charlotte County Human Resources Department for nearly 15 years.
“We at HR Florida State Council feel privileged to present this honor to such an impactful individual,” said HR Florida State Council President Lynnette Holsinger. “In human resources, we often talk about leaders who come from all parts of the organization, and not just those at the top. It is wonderful to see the impact Jackie has made on her organization as a true HR professional.”
