Enabling Enterprise Trip to the Hilton Hotel.
The day started off with the students interviewing the volunteers to find out about their different roles, responsibilities and the Enterprise Skills required to do their jobs. Students then went on a tour of the premises, which allowed the teams to see the great variety of jobs available and to learn some valuable information about different departments.
The challenge for the students was to take on the role of a Human Resources team for Hilton and decide on some new recruits for the hotel chain. First of all, they learned about the different jobs on offer and the different skills the right candidate would need to be successful in the role of a receptionist, cleaner and finance manager. They then needed to use their Problem Solving to match potential candidates to each job, thinking carefully about matching the right candidate to the right position based on their skills and past experience. It was really important that students were Sharing Ideas with each other so that they could come up with the most convincing reasons to hire each candidate.
The day culminated in teams pitching their choices to a panel of judges in the hope that they could persuade them that their Human Resources team was most effective in applying the Enterprise Skills.
