Stephen L. Metcalfe Invites the Participant to Exercise 

 

There is something different in NEO (New Employee Orientation) UPH this time. On the previous years, to welcome the new staffs and lecturers, UPH only held seminar sessions, but for this XX Batch NEO, the HRD (Human Resource Development) of UPH invited Stephen L. Metcalfe as one of the key speaker, who brought the topic “Healthy with UPH.” Metcalfe is the Director of UPH Sports Management who has brought UPH Eagles Basketball team to obtain various achievements. 

 

Metcalfe talked about a short motivation on how as a part of one UPH family, we are supposed to stay in a good shape together in order to achieve the vision of UPH.

 “If we’re not healthy, then how are we supposed to do what God has accounted us for with maximum effort, especially in serving the students,” he explained. 

 

Moreover, Metcalfe also said that the best role model who we should look up to is Jesus Christ. How Jesus as a loyal individual, who always obey His Father’s calling and still fulfill His own life quality. 

 

Healthy with UPH was held for about two hours. It consisted of motivation session, which went on for about more than one hour with Stephen L. Metcalfe, and the remaining 40 minutes was filled with healthy exercises, such as push up, squat jump, plank, and knee up.  

 

The participants were divided into 6 groups, where they would then have to make a building with chopsticks and rubber bands. In each group, there are several roles that will be chosen: production leader, architect, accountant and purchasing, that will each have a special task. During the execution, sometimes the project leader in the team could be called out for a special task by the CEO. At the other time, some other team members could be mutated to another team.

 

The point of this game is to train the teamwork between the group members to achieve one shared goal, although there were challenges along the way. Mutation process and unexpected calls from the superiors here seems to be just like in real life. But then, we still have to achieve the real goal with the maximum outcome. 

 

Another new thing could be seen in the middle of the sessions, there was talent show from every group. They presented a number of performances like drama, choir, and other performances.

New Employee Orientation Batch XX would be held on August 9 – 11, 2017.

 

Welcome and have a great time serving in UPH
