Release Date: March 8, 2016
Four Camosun College students claimed first prize at the prestigious HRC West case competition for Human Resources students, held March 4 and 5, 2016 at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Alberta.
Camosun’s team (dubbed “4-Js Consulting”) was comprised of business students Aidan Love, Hannah Dougherty, Rebecca Verwolf and Marcelle Santana Lima, who took a complex business case and applied practical HR principles as they defeated nine other teams from western Canada.
“They were truly amazing. It makes me so proud to see them convey their learning of HR principles, practices, and analysis to define scope for real life purposes,” said Robin McQueen, faculty coach.
In the words of the Alberta finalist judge, CEO HRIA Chris McNelly, “The 4-Js Consulting did a great job keeping the presentation simple, clear and focused on the issue and also balanced amongst the presenters. The presentation was easy to follow and practical to implement. We were looking for a balance of academic knowledge and practical application.”
Human Resources Management Association (HRMA) of BC partnered with the HRIA (Alberta) to organize the 2016 HRC West Case Competition which is designed to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas between industry experts and HR students across Western Canada. The competition gives students an opportunity to put their classroom knowledge to the test by solving a case that is based on a real HR situation.
