Teaching Human Resource Management with GoVenture HR Simulations
GoVenture HR simulations are perfect for allowing students to directly experience human resource management.
GoVenture engages students in a personal way by having them run their own businesses while making human resources decisions. This approach is much more effective than basic exercises and case studies that have students read about third-party businesses.
HR management is a component in two GoVenture business simulations and a leadership simulation can be used to round out the experience:
Start with a lemonade stand, level up to a kiosk, food truck, and full business then build a regional franchise from the ground up. Enhanced with microlearning videos and quizzes. Ideal for players of all ages and levels.
A highly realistic small business simulation where players hire and manage individual employees. HR management options progressively increase as the player further expands their business.
Players review job applicants to identify desired skills, including productivity, customer service, and other job-specific experience.
Players set employee salaries and benefits, schedule daily work hours, and monitor employee performance, attendance, morale, and other metrics. Players can invest in training employees to improve performance over time.
This simulation offers a high-level strategy experience where students compete against each other in the same marketplace to win the same customers. Unlike GoVenture ENTREPRENEUR, this simulation is more focused on high-level decisions with less time spent on running the business.
Students do not manage individual employees but instead manage employee numbers (5 job functions), salaries, benefits, productivity, morale, training, hiring and severance costs.
Metrics include Morale, Productivity, Turnover Rate, Turnover Cost, and overall HR Score. Instructors can customize the variables, including productivity levels, average turnover rate in the industry, minimum employee numbers, starting salaries, and more.
An experiential learning activity that builds leadership, strategy, and collaboration skills. Customized to match any activity, company, or business function. Play individually or in teams.
