My experience with HRManagement

Prof. Hendy has used the HRM simulation in teaching the introductory course in HRM and strategic HRM since 2009. The simulation has been found to be effective at engaging students and motivating them to learn about HR by applying what they learn to running an HR Department of a medium-sized organization. Compared to a control group (N = 56), students who were taught by the HRM simulation gained 15% more of the HR technical competencies (i.e., functional areas of HR) at the end of the semester based on a sample of 69 students in the experimental group.
