Puppy play day de-stressing Uni students

By tobefair - 13 May 2014 4

Throughout my career I have heard many a manager lament the challenges of motivating and engaging someone of the younger generation in the workforce.  I have generally stood up for the newbies as I believe they have a huge amount to offer if those ‘older’ generations of us can find a way to work with them. Can open… Worms everywhere.

I do however have to wonder if students coming through University these days are maybe unprepared for the realities of corporate life, particularly after reading ‘How University of Canberra is helping students to stress less‘ in The Canberra Times.

‘Stress-less’ week, organised by UC Life!, will feature a number of events such as a Zumba class, pop-up pub, pancake breakfast, a market day and puppy play day to de-stress students ahead of exams next week.

A puppy play date?  Maybe stress levels wouldn’t be quite so high if time was spent studying instead of having a pancake breakfast or hanging out in the pop-up pub?

 

What’s Your opinion?

Looks better than giving funding to some society p*ss-up.

Sounds like the work of ‘policy’ people to me.
