  • Have taken, or are taking, at least one undergraduate human resources course

Team Composition

Schools are responsible for assembling their representative team based on the above eligibility criteria. Competition teams must consist of three members and one alternate.

To prevent bias in judging, each team is also required to submit a unique team name that does not reveal their post-secondary institution.

Competition Format

The 2022 HRC West Case Competition will take place virtually on Zoom. All participants will be required to sign in on their own Zoom account from an independent location. A welcome event will take place on the evening of Friday, March 4, 2022. A random draw will be done that will determine team start times for Saturday, March 5, 2022.

Every team will have three full hours to review the case and prepare a response. Immediately after their preparation time, the teams will present to a group of judges, using PowerPoint as their presentation tool. Presentations are 20 minutes in length followed by up to 10 minutes of Q&A.

A short break will be followed by a subsequent Zoom session when the top four teams will be announced. The four finalist teams will present to a new panel of judges, in front of an audience of their fellow competitors, first round judges, sponsors and association staff.

An awards celebration will be held following the finalist presentations where the winners will be announced and all HRC West participants will be celebrated!

Judging

All judges will be CPHR BC & Yukon or CPHR Alberta volunteers. They will be comprised of senior managers, directors, executives, analysts, consultants and entrepreneurs.

All judges will follow follow the same judging template, which will be available for viewing on our website, after your final payment has been received by the deadline of January 30, 2022. Judges will also receive training prior to their involvement in the competition.
