The YoungRUG Home Games - 6-10 July 2020

Career & Development Event - POSTPONED due to Corona measures

Online event: "Leiderschap in crisistijd"

(The spoken language of this event is Dutch)

Even in times of crisis we continue with events. This time YoungRUG and Younglink organize an online event together on Thursday July 2nd. The topic of this event is: 'Leiderschap in crisistijd'. We ask Janka Stoker, Professor of Leadership and Organizational Change, which leadership styles work best and why, but also what we as young professionals can improve in our work in these times. In addition, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and we have a little suprise for you...!

For further information about the event and the registration, see the following page!

The YoungRUG Home Games

Are you in for some challenges with your UG colleagues? Are you (a little) competitive or do you just want some fun from the safety of your home? Then, sign up for YoungRUG's upcoming event! We admit, no one will feel very special for staying home this summer, but if you are ready for some action (from home), this is even more reason to attend this event! Find up to three colleagues to be part of your dream team and sign up for this event (individual sign up is also possible)!


During the week of 6-10 July, you can take part in the YoungRUG Home Games, together with your team of UG colleagues.

What to expect?

Every day you will get another challenge, which only takes up to 15-30 minutes of your time (or longer depending on your creativity...). Shortly after working hours on Monday 6 July, we will have a plenary opening and we will start the week with challenge number 1. In total, you will get five challenges during the week. Credits are awarded to every team for each completed challenge. It is good to keep in mind; credits are highly rewarded for your creativity! After each challenge, you will be updated via social media about the score between the teams. Friday afternoon, 10 July, after the last challenge, we will have online drinks (bring your own beer) with all the competing teams and the announcement of the winning team!

What is in it for you?

Do not underestimate the prize; this is a real trophy to brighten up your home office and a useful accessory for current times!

How to sign up?

Sign up by using the link below before 30 June and save time during the week of 6-10 July. All UG employees are very welcome to attend! In the online form, it is possible to sign up with team members. Didn't find your dream team yet? Sign up individually and we will make sure you are placed in a fantastic team!

Further instructions will follow after registration, one week before the start of the event!

Hoping to see you all in July!
