The Nevada Association of Employers (NAE) has announced the 2017 recipient of its HR Professional of the Year award.
Jason Ispisua, associate director of human resources at Charles River Laboratories in Reno, was nominated by his colleagues for his expertise, leadership and commitment to the human resources team.
“We are excited to present NAE’s first HR Professional of the Year award to an outstanding individual in recognition of his efforts and contributions to his company,” said Thoran Towler, NAE chief executive officer. “With this award, we hope to empower and inspire other HR professionals to continue achieving business excellence.”
Ispisua spearheads the human resources department at Charles River, which supports more than 600 employees. After the death of Frank Yarmer, the director of human resources who had been at Charles River for more than six years, Ispisua took over the role and responsibilities to lead the department. He has also implemented several programs, including succession planning, performance review and management training.
