Abstract

The Society of Human Resources sponsors three regional student case competitions each year, giving each team an HR scenario to be evaluated for possible solutions. The case study is sent to teams three weeks before the competition, and teams are required to review the case, design a solution, create an executive summary with a power point presentation, within five days. The solution must include a human resources approach at its core. The completed case is then submitted to judges before the event and presented at the case competition three weeks later. The case scenario was Frostburg Fit, a gym growing rapidly, with staffing not keeping up with growth. Frostburg Fit started out as an endeavor by a passionate Physical Education teacher to increase local children’s activity levels and teach better nutritional choices. What began as a kid’s gym has now become a full-fledged fitness center and sports arena with many amenities to members of all ages. Not yet in its twenty-fifth year, it has reached its capacity for growth. With that amazing growth and popularity have come some unique challenges. We are charged with evaluating the challenges and proposing HR solutions.
