S.C.R.U.B.S.

We began the day with a game requiring
everyone to re-visit their 3rd grade math skills!
First two numbers were chosen. As we went
around the circle, each member counted
whichever number fell upon them aloud. Those
who landed on a multiple of the chosen number
is supposed to clap instead of saying the number
aloud. Members who were unable to “math”
were subjected to stand in the center of the
circle to answer questions while flailing their
arms in the air.

>> stands for SHRM Club Recruitment
Ultimate Biannual Social. This semester, we
gathered at Mānoa Valley Park to play games,
eat delicious foods, and get to know one
another! Gannon Chibana, our Director of
Student Affairs, organized various games to
help break the ice. The pictures above shows
our members getting ready for our blindfolded, balloon toss relay!

Lunch was catered by Gina’s BBQ. Winners
of the relay were allowed to eat first.
However, there were ample amounts and
enough variety to satisfy everyone’s
cravings! Check out our Spring 2016
S.C.R.U.B.S YouTube video to see highlights
of our event!

IBC Back to Business Bowling
Kicking off the month of February was the IBC
Back to Business Bowling! All eleven Shidler
business clubs gathered together to reconnect, network, and welcome our new and
returning members at the Aiea Bowling Alley.
Although this was a late night event, the
combination of cosmic bowling, music,
delicious foods, and great company created an
exciting experience for all! Speaking of great
company, it is always pleasant when SHRM
alumni come back to visit. At the IBC Bowling
was Geng Fang and Sheina Baybayan to name a
few!
New members developed more
friendships and learned about the exciting life
after graduation!

Since Back to Business Bowling includes all
business clubs, it can become quite
intimidating for new members. However, as
you can see from the awkward photos
above, we accept each member
wholeheartedly (whether they like it or not)
and appreciate their participation! In the
lower left photo, we see vice president,
Jessica Higashi, and member, Tracy Yuan,
displaying absolutely no shame for utilizing
the bowling ramps. One of our newest
members, Carley Shimizu, recalls Back to
Business as a “great experience to meet
other people and socialize!” She was
ecstatic to make so many new friends!

On February 21st, the SHRM Aloha
Chapter and Finance Management
Association held a joint social at
Kaimana Beach! The weather was
beautiful, aside from the abusive
winds. However, the members had a
great time socializing with one
another. The food was delicious, as
always, and there were lots of Red
Bull to keep us awake! Thanks to the
connections of our Director of
Student Affairs, Gannon Chibana,
members were able to participate in
a free yoga session!

February 21st was also our IBC
Senator, Tyler Hishinuma’s, Birthday!
Here he poses with cheesecakes.

FMA and SHRM members participating in yoga. Little
did they know their muscles would ache the next day!

UH vs UCI Basketball Game Social
On February 11th, the
SHRM Aloha Chapter went
to support our men’s
basketball team as they
won against UC Irvine!
That evening was a
“blackout night” in which
audience members were
encouraged to wear black.
“Straight Outta Manoa”
shirts were distributed as
well as awesome green
lightsabers!!!

WORKSHOPS
Resume and Interviews 101 with Cindy Paguyo
:
SHRM's first spring 2016 workshop was hosted by
Cindy Paguyo and Kristin Inouye from Hawai'i
Pacific Health. The two enthusiastic professionals
shared their personal insights and experiences
when it came to resumes and interviews. Their
thorough breakdown of what belongs on a
resume to walking through each step in the
interviewing process, left our members with a
feeling of confidence and excitement to test out
their new found knowledge in an actual
interview. Our members particularly enjoyed the
little inspirational quotes scattered throughout
their presentation!

“The workshop was a great learning

experience. It helped me strengthen my
resume and prepare for future
interviews!” – Alan Phu

Company Tours

Thanks to our Director of
Corporate
Relations,
Tyler
Navarro, the SHRM Aloha
Chapter was given the amazing
opportunity to tour the Hawaiian
Host chocolate factory without
having to find the golden ticket!
We ended the tour with an
informational Q&A session with
the Hawaiian Host professionals
whom provided inspiring advice
to our members. They were also
extremely
generous
with
allowing us to taste their
delicious products!

After touring the chocolate factory, Angelica Kaina, pulls
a box of chocolates straight from the conveyer belt! She
describes the process of how each step contributes to
their signature quality. Later, we were allowed to eat the
freshly made chocolates!

Support
our
Regal
Bakery
Fundraiser! Who doesn’t love
donuts? Maybe not as much as
Homer Simpson BUT this fundraiser
can also purchase other Regal
Bakery items, such as breakfast,
lunch, and dinner plates! Who
wouldn’t be happy with a deal like
that!

For our first community service,
the SHRM Aloha Chapter
volunteered at the Great Aloha
Run! With an average of 24,000
runners every year, we kept busy
the entire day! It felt nice to
promote a healthy lifestyle to the
community as we sat down and
distributed packets. In fact, our
Director of Marketing, Ryan
Silao, became inspired to
participate in the next Great
Aloha Run. Additionally, our club
had one of the greatest number
of volunteers. We were proud to
see such active participation!

The SHRM Aloha Chapter is looking to reconnect with their chapter’s alumni and
they need your HELP!

SHRM Hawai’i Breakfast

SHRM Hawaii – Oahu Educational Foundation Human Resources
Today and In the Future
This January, the SHRM Aloha Chapter was
invited to a breakfast held by SHRM Hawaii
regarding the current situation and future of
the field of Human Resources. Sharing their
knowledge and experience were guest
speakers, Jonnelly Miller and Beth
Whitehead. Through this experience, the
executive board members learned about the
importance of constant and consistent
feedback in the work place to ensure quality
communication between the employer and
the employee. Overall, feedback, worker
appreciation, and trust were key elements to
creating an effective and efficient work
environment.

Our Director of Corporate Relations, Tyler
Navarro, will be graduating this spring and is
excited to utilize this knowledge, stating
“The speakers really offered some powerful
advice that I can take with me as I enter the
workforce in a few months after
graduation!" This information can also be
applied to situations outside of the work
place. Since the SHRM Aloha Chapter is
accepting to all majors outside of the Shidler
School of Business, this information can be
utilized for any group project or activity. By
applying the points discussed by Whitehead
and Miller, one can improve group dynamic
and make group work something to enjoy.
