The annual HR student networking event was held on March 3rd. This was another successful initiative with 37 students and 20 industry representatives participating. A wonderful opportunity for students to connect with practitioners, learn more about HR management, and practice networking skills. Plans are already underway for next year’s event scheduled for March 15, 2016. Many thanks to the Human Resources Institute of Alberta for their ongoing sponsorship of this event.
The Bissett School of Business was proud to host the second annual HRC West – an annual human resources case competition designed to showcase students’ skills through an academic competition among post-secondary institutions across Western Canada. Bissett’s HR student team (Ravi Chung, Miranda Mountain, and Jenna Price) placed second and made our school very proud.
