The saying “work hard, play hard“ should be reversed.
Companies like Google and LinkedIn play a wide variety of games such as volleyball, bowling, foosball and arcade games. Due to an increase in play, stress levels decrease and usually optimism goes up. When employees are given the chance to relax, creative thoughts always seem to flow.
“There is good evidence that if you allow employees to engage in something they want to do, (which) is playful, there are better outcomes in terms of productivity and motivation”– Dr. Stuart Brown, founder of the national institute for play.
Teamwork Games That Get Outrageous Get Results
The power of play gets you working as a team. The method behind our madness is based on a growing mountain of evidence that shows people who have fun at work as:
- More productive
- More creative
- More motivated
- More flexible and resilient
- Better able to meet job demands
Outrageous Games is the perfect summer activity. Just like the format of the Olympic games, Bronze, Silver and Gold medals are awarded to top tier teams. Picture an open field filled with all the nuts and bolts of a field day.
The torch is ignited at the beginning and the games last about two hours. Aside from the in game action, commentators give an inside scoop of all the fun.
