Governor Dennis Daugaard recently issued an Executive Proclamation naming September 1, 2015 as South Dakota Human Resources Professionals Day.  In honor of the occasion, Davenport Evans Labor and Employment attorneys held a special drawing. All morning, local HR professionals entered the drawing online and through the Davenport Evans Employment Law eNewsletter, for office treats to help HR professionals celebrate!

The drawing was held at noon, after which a large tray of “HR Day” Cookie Jar cookies was delivered to recipient Ona Reker of Metro Communications Agency.  When considering her career in Human Resources, Reker said, “I am humbled by the work our staff perform here at Metro Communications 911.  It’s a pleasure to serve them and be a part of the larger public safety team that serves our community.  Like many responsibilities in an agency our size, HR services are successful because of the team work of many of our staff.  Thanks for the recognition and sweet treats – I’ve enjoyed sharing them with all of our team!”

Happy Human Resources Professionals Day to all from the Labor and Employment attorneys of Davenport Evans!
