human resources management students placed first at the HR Student Games during the Michigan Society for Human Resource Management State Conference this month.
More than 1,000 human resources professionals from around Michigan attended the event in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Alex Heaney and Mitchell Woolley, both seniors, and Rob Erwin, a junior, competed against seven other teams from Michigan universities.
The competition enables team members to leverage their course knowledge in answering questions. During the competition, structured like a quiz show, each team must think quickly and apply ethical decision-making to answer each question.
“Local events enhance students’ perspectives on the value and importance of what it means to be a member of the HR community and career partners with SHRM as they embark on their HR professional pursuits,” said Shawn Premer, Society for Human Resource Management senior certified professional and state coordinator of MISHR.
