Six colleges from five states take home prizes for best division presentations
ALEXANDRIA, Va.—The 2016 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Student Case Competitions, held in March and April, drew 74 universities from across the United States.
Six universities—two from each division (West, East and Central)—took home first place. The competition was broken into Division I and Division II categories with one winner from each sector.
This “realistic job preview” enables team members to use their course knowledge and apply it to a real life HR situation. During the competition, each team analyzed and solved a business case by preparing a written executive summary and 15-minute oral presentation, which required integrated HR thinking, ethical decision-making, and strong communication and presentation skills. Preliminary and final oral presentation rounds were judged onsite by a panel of certified SHRM members.
Over the course of the two-day event, students also received information about relevant to HR management through professional speakers and practicing HR professionals. SHRM sponsors three Case Competition events across the United States yearly.
Winning teams and their advisors received free registrations to SHRM’s Annual Conference & Exposition, $2,500 in travel reimbursement, and special recognition at the conference.
“SHRM’s Student Case Competition and Career Summits are the premier student HR conferences in the United States,” said Susan Post, SHRM-SCP, east divisional director at SHRM. “These events offer a unique opportunity for HR students to apply in-class learning to real-world HR scenarios, showcase their knowledge to seasoned HR practitioners, and enhance students’ perspectives on what it means to be a member of the HR community.”
2016 SHRM Student Case Competition winners were:
