Year 12 Business Trip to Spookers

Year 12 Business students participated in a trip up to Auckland to experience first hand what Spookers was all about. The purpose of the trip was to collect information on what strategies the business applies to motivate their staff for our 2.5 assessment worth 3 credits. 

This information will be organised into a report that analyses whether this strategy is successful and explains how it affects the business.

Some students didn’t seem phased by the spooky actors while others definitely let out a few screams.

*disclaimer: no students were harmed in the process.
