Talent Reality™ 101

HR Professionals deserve to be recognized and appreciated in the C-Suite for their value delivered to the bottom line.

Talent Reality™ 101 (TR™101) puts documented, real world tools in the hands of the HR Pro to help you add value while demonstrating your value, as you also earn 6 Business and Strategic Credits toward your HRCI and/or SHRM Certification or Recertification.

TR™101 uses a gamified simulation to teach business fundamentals such as workforce optimization, employee engagement, the cost of onboarding and turnover, and allocating talent to the best positions for success.


TR™101 creates in-the-moment player realization through a true hands-on experiential, gamified learning method. In many deliberately structured “AHA” moments, players learn to think and act like the business owner – all designed to enhance efficiency, productivity and profitability.


Teams of four players ‘act’ as the management team for their simulated company. As managers, they are responsible for running every aspect of the business; including payroll, supply-chain, efficient investment, on-boarding of new employees and scheduling employee work flow. Additionally, they also run full income statements and balance sheets in the simulation.

Designed for leaders and managers responsible for creating and implementing the deployment strategy in a company, TR™101 cuts directly to cost issues and immediately helps clarify the difference between making positive investments for the future or throwing good money at a bad strategy or procedure.

Simply put, TR™101 simulation does three things:

1. Underscores the employee base as an appreciating asset
2. Identifies the financial success companies can have when they put the right people in highly effective work flow processes
3. Positions the HR Pro more effectively as critical to bottom line success and a true top line asset

This combination almost always equates to profitability.

One of the biggest challenges facing companies today is getting the employee base to understand how the business works, how it makes money, earns profits and how important each individual is to driving overall company success.

The wildly popular and effective TR™101 simulation provides complete income statements and balance sheets allowing participants to understand just how vital they are to creating company success.

In these sessions, players learn to engage the workforce and optimize their efforts allowing the company to drive a better customer experience while reducing costs and maximizing profits.
