HR Florida is pleased to announce its 2019 Student Games – Case Competition, to be held on October 5 at the Saddlebrook Resort & Spa.

In this “realistic job preview” competition, team members will leverage knowledge acquired through their studies and apply it to a realistic HR situation likely to be encountered in the work world.  This competition requires integrated HR thinking, ethical decision-making, and strong communications and presentation skills.

Teams will be provided with a business case study approximately 21 days before the event.  Each team will analyze the case study and come up with a solution, preparing both a written executive summary and PowerPoint slides to be used for a 15-minute oral presentation at the onsite competition.  Teams will compete by delivering their 15-minute presentation to a panel of judges and answering additional questions the judges deem relevant to ask.

Two levels of competitions will be held – an undergraduate and a graduate division.  Prizes will be awarded to the top team of each division.
