The News Magazine of HCU

The National Academy of Human Resources (NAHR) sponsored the yearly Ram Charan Essay Contest in New York City, and taking top prize were Suetta Miller, a student in the masters of HR management program at HBU and Brenda A. Barros-Rivera, a PhD student in the HR and organizational-behavior program at Texas A&M. Their paper, titled In the Game—A Contingency Framework of Public Policy, explored HR’s role in influencing public policy. The NAHR inducts top HR executives into their group as Fellows. This year’s group of inductees was quite impressive – they included execs from Procter & Gamble, Google, HP, Blackstone Group, Cornell, and a former executive from DirecTV.   Three winners/students from around the world were selected and flown to the meeting in New York City to present their paper to the Fellows, both past and present. Top winners receive a $20,000 prize
