Congratulations to Acsenda School of Management team “Clever Rain Consulting”, who represented us at the recent Human Resources West Coast Case Competition, HRC West, at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops on March 2, 2019. Team members were Alyssa Masanga, Diana Lagarde, Jazziella Paras, and Karanbir Brar. Also, student Mae Logronio and HR Concentration Coordinator, Pomponia Martinez supported the team throughout their many weeks of practice.
The ASM team competed with 15 other teams and performed extremely well in what was one of the most challenging cases of the event to-date. Students were pleased with the challenge, their results and the learning that was achieved during this demanding competition. Most importantly, they had fun, proudly represented Acsenda and made many connections with both faculty and peers from learning institutions across western Canada.
Our team members were also able to participate in a Work Personally Index assessment and debriefing, which was conducted by Psychometrics. This assessment supports leadership development through self-awareness, adding to the overall learning experience gained during the competition challenge.
HRC West is the first business case competition in western Canada dedicated entirely to Human Resources and is an incredible opportunity for students to connect with industry professionals and to gain real-world HR knowledge by completing the case study.
We want to thank the Chartered Professionals in Human Resource Association (CPHR) for sponsoring this competition. Congratulations to the winning team from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton and to other participating teams for their inspiration and camaraderie. A very special thank you to our student team, Clever Rain for their leadership and initiative in successfully representing Acsenda School of Management. Well done team! We are proud of you!
Next year’s West Coast Case Competition will be held on March 6-7, 2020 in Edmonton, Alberta. For more information about how you can be a part of this event, please contact program coordinator Pomponia Martinez.
