Five teams of business students from the University of Toronto and Toronto’s Ryerson University faced off in the first HR — The Authentic Challenge, organized in February by the Organizational Development Alliance at U of T and Ryerson’s HR Students’ Association.

The teams received a case study the night before the competition and, one hour prior to their presentation time, were given four questions focusing on organization behaviour. They had a fifteen minute presentation in which they had to answer these questions, with a proceeding question period.

The judging panel was composed of two HR professionals — Yvonne Blaszcyk and Ian Turnbull — and Ryerson University professor Pat Sniderman.
