Fort Worth, Tex.— ECi Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today announced that Senior Vice President of Human Resources Andrew Pryor was named 2018 HR Executive of the Year—Large Company by DallasHR.
The HR Executive of the Year award recognizes an HR executive who has exemplified the strategic role of human resources in the past 12 months and who is an outstanding leader within the HR community. Awards were provided in two categories based on company size: medium (51-499 employees) and large (500+ employees). The award committee for Executive of the Year is chaired by the 2018 President of DallasHR, Dustin Paschal, and includes four current DallasHR members and/or previous award winners, along with the DallasHR Executive Director, Brad C. Shanklin. Winners were named at the 2018 HRStars Gala on Saturday, December 1 at the Westin Galleria in Dallas, Texas.
ECi employs more than 1,000 people around the world, many of whom are industry experts who came to the company through mergers and acquisitions. Despite operating across different geographies and incorporating new groups of people into its employee base, ECi has stayed true to its consistent, supportive culture, investing in employee benefits and maintaining an 88 percent favorable rating from its workers. The DallasHR award recognizes Pryor’s role in achieving these goals.
Pryor’s impressive credentials, including his past presidency of the SHRM Fort Worth Chapter and position as International Human Resource Executive of the Year by the International Business Awards, dually contributed to his inclusion on the shortlist of honorees and his eventual winner status.
“My passion is helping people build stronger careers for themselves and create better lives for their families,” said Pryor. “Winning this award validates all the hard work that we’ve done to make ECi the best place to work possible, and I’m excited to continue helping our employees attain success and grow here.”
This award follows ECi’s placement in the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in America for the third year in a row, as well as Pryor’s Gold Stevie in the 2018 International Business Awards for Human Resources Executive of the Year.
