For Human Resources Management courses.

This simulation combines the human resource elements found in the real world along with the business environment found in this type of situation. This model will take the decisions from class “teams” and simulate how the labor marketplace and the organization will react. The relative “appropriateness” of each team's decisions will be reported on the team's status report furnished each decision quarter.
