    The National Academy of Human Resources, founded in 1992, is the organization where individuals of distinction in human resources are recognized for exceptional professional achievement by election as "Fellows of the NAHR". The Academy also occasionally recognizes human resource related groups as "Honored Institutions/ Organizations". In addition, the NAHR furthers the HR profession through the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) Academy and other philanthropic and educational activities.

    Election as a Fellow of the National Academy of Human Resources is the highest honor that can be achieved by an individual. In 2017 the NAHR installed its 172nd Fellow. Over the last two decades, twelve organizations have also been recognized as "Honored Institutions/Organizations."
