Congratulations to HPU’s Society for
Human Resource Management-Lokahi team for winning the 2008
Fall HR Games of the Hawai‘i State Competition. Our winning
team of HPU undergraduates, Juanet Sablan, Crystal Costa, and
Jaime Zahn, beat the University of Hawai‘i in the final
round. HPU hosted the venue at Warmer Auditorium and was asked
to host the Spring 2009 HR Games on March 7, 2009 from 8:30
a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The HR Games are a Jeopardy-style competition sponsored annually by SHRM. The
HR categories covered in the competition reflect the body of knowledge covered
in HR professional certification exams. The competition consists of a series
of game show-style matches, between teams of up to three undergraduate students
from various colleges and universities. Winning teams at the state level earn
the right to compete at the regional competitions. Regional winners advance further
to compete against other regional champions at the SHRM Annual Conference.
The HR Games offer the opportunity to bring professional chapter volunteers,
students, and student chapter advisors together in a meaningful way. The volunteers
conducting the games get a refresher course in the body of knowledge required
of a HR professional as they listen to the students answer questions. The students
receive an opportunity to network with other students and showcase their knowledge
to HR practitioners.
