Human resources student team places second at HRC West Case Competition

A team of four Bissett School of Business human resources students placed second at the recent HRC West Case Competition, which was hosted by SAIT on March 2 and 3. This human resources focused case competition is a joint initiative of the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources (CPHR) Alberta and the CPHR BC and Yukon professional associations, and aims to develop and showcase the HR stars of the future. Groups from 17 post-secondary institutions from across western Canada participated.

Mount Royal’s team members (under the name of Insightful HR) were Layli Ataie, Colleen Berner, Meredith Johnson, and Jennifer Miko. They were provided with a business case (not previously seen), and were given only three hours to read, analyze, make recommendations and prepare a persuasive and professional presentation to deliver to three CPHR judges from various industries. The team had just 20 minutes to deliver that polished presentation and then respond to 10 minutes of questions from the judges based on their presentation. The finals consisted of a second presentation to the entire case competition delegation in front of a new panel of three judges and over 100 people in the audience.
