Bringing JOY to DHRMP students………
SP Business School team, “Joy”, comprising 4 students from the Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology (DHRMP) emerged First Runner-Up (Polytechnic category) at the Singapore Human Resource (HR) Challenge 2012. This event was organised by the Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI) on 11 February 2012 at NUS.
The Challenge is a platform to showcase innovation and creativity as we as promote progressive HR to students. The theme for Singapore HR Challenge 2012 is HR 2020: HR Capabilities for Business Sustainability. This theme requires participants to brainstorm strategies and present on the HR challenges organisations would face in 2020, and how they can work towards achieving success and sustainability for their businesses. Participants would also need to look into how organisations can leverage on technology to embrace the challenges ahead as technology would play an integral role in shaping HR Challenges for the future.

The team walked away with $500 cash, Certificates of Commendation, Serenity Spanish Bar & Restaurant Dining Vouchers (S$100), complimentary tickets to SHRI Conferences (HR Pinnacle TM & SHRI HRD Conference 2012).
This is what team leader, Zelia Leong has to say about her experience:
“Competition is an incentive to progress. Joining the HR Challenge amidst the Internship Programme meant we had to work doubly hard to achieve a balance between them. The process of the Challenge is a valuable experience and gave us the kind of exposure we can never get in a classroom. It celebrates teamwork and the spirit to collaborate in competition. Through the Challenge, I was able to translate theory into actual practice, seeing many of the things we’ve learnt put to use in real corporate contexts. I am honoured and thankful for the opportunity to represent SP at such a level, and be part of a team which showed that HR is not just an administrative role but a strategic partner to businesses. I strongly encourage anyone who has the aptitude for HR to take part in next year’s Challenge.”
Well said, Zelia!... and we certainly look forward to another enriching and valuable experience for our DHRMP students in the HR Challenge 2013!
