Recently, as part of our Signature Awards series, South Florida Business & Wealth celebrated our Human Resources Awards—it was a uniquely festive evening held at Gulfstream Park’s glamorous Sport of Kings theater, hosted by managing director Kim Sarni and vice president of human resources search at Steven Douglas, Alan Berger.
Steven Douglas, a longtime partner of Lifestyle Media Group, was also represented by Steven Sadaka, the chairman and founder of Steven Douglas who appeared on SFBW’s cover in February. (He explained that Douglas is his middle name: “My mother used to say ‘Steven Douglas’ when she was mad at me.”)
Honoring the top HR minds in South Florida, this annual event represents an ongoing tribute to tireless, top-performing professionals, as well as to the varied practice areas that reflect our multi-industry region. HR is about building teams, careers and business at every stage of the life cycle—and so, at its essence, the field is about relationships. At Lifestyle Media Group, we believe in connections done right, so we have a special respect and affinity for the pros who connect talented South Floridians with new colleagues, new companies, new jobs and new futures.
The human resources specialists recognized were nominated by members of the community. We specifically asked to learn about those who have demonstrated an overall commitment to the HR profession in South Florida, and in response, we were gratified to receive hundreds of nominations through our website and our partners in the business world. The results were determined by our senior leadership. We extend our sincere appreciation to our loyal and valued sponsors, who were indispensable in enabling us to produce the HR Awards this year.
