Penn State LER/SHRM Chapter Wins Northeast Case Competition!
On April 12 members of Penn State’s Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Chapter travelled to Rhode Island to compete in SHRM’s Annual Northeast Region Case Competition. The competition involves a team of student’s analyzing human resource management case studies and presenting their analysis and recommendations to a panel of SHRM judges. Penn State’s team prevailed over undergraduate teams from ten other universities including Cornell, Rutgers, and Villanova! As a result they brought back a four foot long check for $2,500 (now on display in the LER Office) that will help pay their expenses to the national SHRM Conference in Orlando in June to which all the regional winners were invited.
The members of Team Penn State worked very hard in preparation for the event, spending parts of several weekends honing their skills and their hard work paid off.
Congratulations to team members Christen Sheroff, Olivia Washington, Brandon Kreider, Jocelin Linares, Malory Sanchez, and Josh Loder and our alternates Julia McClarnon, Megan Flaherty, and Porche Maloney. Thanks to Tom Hogan and Greg Loviscky who coached the team to victory!
