HRManagement is a competitive Human Resource Management simulation where students manage the human resources department of a medium-sized organization. Acting as the newly-appointed Human Resource Director of a firm of 600 employees, decisions range from making budgets to setting policy, as well as dealing with incidents common to the Human Resource function.
Peggy Golden, Jerald Smith,
The main objective of HRManagement is to simulate the operation of a human resource department with realistic budget and market constraints. Students must not only make informed decisions, but they must react to the outcomes of their decisions.
HRManagement is designed with the following learning goals for your students:
Students assume the newly created position of Human Resources Director for a medium sized firm with over 600 employees. The firm has experienced significant expansion in the past few years and the human resource department and its functions have not kept pace with company growth. The CEO has instructed the new director to get the human resource department organized and build a strong HR function. Students must set some ambitious, yet realistic, quantifiable goals for their department.

Combining our simulation HRManagement with our quizzes and assignments gives you the tools to assess your students’ understanding of the concepts of HR Management. The following grading rubric works best to assess your students’ knowledge and understanding, providing a thorough assessment.
We have used HRManagement for a number of years now, and we are consistently impressed with both the depth of the simulation as well as the support received. The simulation provides our students with realistic decisions to be made, and, importantly, helps students understand the consequences of their decisions. It is difficult to get the balance right – too simple, and the simulation becomes boring; too complex, and the learning points are lost. This simulation strikes the right balance to make it fun, challenging, rewarding and useful. In addition, we receive wonderful, prompt support from everyone at Interpretive. They listen to our needs, and help both Faculty and students quickly and with a minimum of fuss – exactly what we are looking for.
Many of my student commented about not having an opportunity to do a budget on their jobs and others shied away from anything that had to do with numbers. But at the end of the course, students commented that they had a better grasps to budgets and were confident that they can develop, monitor etc. budgets.
The simulation worked great for my class as it has for the past 5 years!! I can’t see ever teaching the HRM class without using the Interpretive simulation!
As a first time adopter of the simulation I could not be more impressed and delighted to receive this tremendous and timely assistance.
You have assisted GREATLY! Thank you so much! It has been a while since I did this simulation and although I am a little rusty, I realize why this is such a GREAT PROGRAM! Again, thanks to you and all those GREAT PEOPLE at Interpretive Simulation!
