close

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach have been hosting Work Placement students since 2003, and have hosted approximately fifty students throughout the years.  In 2016, as well as hosting hospitality students, Novotel Brighton agreed to host students in the construction and electro technology frameworks, enabling more students the opportunity to gain valuable experience through their work placements.

They have always been very accommodating and supportive of the students, and love being a part of the program.

Why Novotel Brighton host students?

Hosting students allows Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach to strengthen our partnerships with the local schools and community. We are also able to showcase our hotel to the students and teach them about our great industry – hospitality. 

What are the benefits to the business?

In addition to the above, hosting students also increases the training and mentoring skills of our current staff members.  It’s also a great way of sourcing new and upcoming talent. 

Have you ever employed a work placement student?

Yes we have! In the past we have employed students in various areas of the hotel including the restaurant and the kitchen.

How to motivate teenagers

close

In the last 15 years I have invested my life in getting into the heads and hearts of these creatures we call teenagers to find out what makes them tick and how we can best engage and motivate them to help them achieve their full potential.

Through these years of research and working with teenagers in environments from Juvenile Justice through to some of the most elite private schools in Australia I have identified 16 critical keys to motivate teenagers and help them to help themselves.

 

1. Meaning Inspires Motivation

Recent studies show that in the workplace (especially with teenagers and Generation Y) meaning is more important than money when it comes to motivation.  29% of teenagers say that doing something meaningful was the most important thing about work and the main reason they decided to work where they do.  25% were primarily motivated by money and 17% by recognition.

Therefore one of the key ways to motivate teenagers is to engage them in work or projects which involve something meaningful.  This is easy if you have opportunities and projects which help alleviate poverty or provide clean drinking water to 3rd world countries, like ThankYou Water, but not as easy if we’re talking about school or for profit businesses.

One way to engage teenagers in the process of establishing meaning and a greater sense of purpose in what they do, is to involve them in the process of establishing your company mission statement and vision.  In the class room, you can always use real world examples which include a sense of meaning and purpose to the work you are doing.
