Welcome Instructors!

"The HRSim exceeded our expectations on all levels.  Impressive responses came from many students who used the program. Many commented on how realistic the simulation was and how much they enjoyed it. The HRSim gives students a realistic preview of what it is like to work in a professional HR environment. I would, and have, recommended it to colleagues."

Jerry Van Rossum - Marygrove College

“I found the simulation to be effective in the sense of a realistic HR environment, based on my HR work experience. The issues that encompass this simulation directly pertain to real world issues in business. The effects of making a bad decision directly affect productivity, profitability,  and other aspects of a business just like in a real company.”
