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.
