About the SHRM Case Competition 

The SHRM Case Competition consists of a one day event where teams of up to six undergraduate or graduate students from various colleges and universities compete in both oral and written presentations. The case is created specifically for the SHRM Case Competition and can focus on any number of HR issues (i.e., Management Practices; Selection & Recruitment; Training & Development; Compensation & Benefits; Employee/Labor Relations; and Health, Safety & Security or a combination). The teams have four hours to read, evaluate, and draft both the oral and written presentations.  After the four hour preparation period, the teams provide their written presentation to one set of judges for review and present their oral presentation to another set of judges.  The judges receive the scoring criteria which they use to evaluate both the written and oral presentations.  The teams have 15 minutes to present their oral presentation.  The highest ranking team from this evaluation will be the winner.
