PORTALES-Eastern New Mexico University's Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) recently competed for the first time in the New Mexico SHRM HR (human resource) Games at the University of New Mexico. Using a "Jeopardy style" format, SHRM student chapters from across New Mexico tested their knowledge of human resource management issues.
The friendly competition allows students to prepare for the Professional Human Resource (PHR) certification exam. Additionally, students have the opportunity to network with HR practitioners from across the state.
The ENMU team--Tomasita Garza, Eric Greer, Sara Henry, and Emily Partin--tested their HR knowledge against teams from New Mexico State University and University of New Mexico. After winning their round against NMSU, the ENMU team competed against the UNM team for the right to represent New Mexico in the regional HR Games competition to be held in Tempe, Ariz., on April April 5-6.
The contest with UNM was evenly matched for most of the final round. ENMU finally lost in the remaining minutes of the round. While ENMU lost the final round, the team won the NM HR Games Collegiality Award.
SHRM is one of the leading professional organizations for human resource management professionals. With chapters throughout the United States, SHRM provides its members with an array of professional publications, research, and networking opportunities to help develop and implement human resource management policies and procedures.
ENMU's SHRM, whose host chapter is located in Roswell, is affiliated with the Southeastern New Mexico Human Resource Association (SENMHRA). For more information, contact Dr. Lee Weyant at 505-562-5352 (email@example.com).
