When you connect your team through play, you create a culture with roots.

Why Play?

In today’s workplace, where companies are experimenting with in-person, remote, and hybrid work arrangements, making connections and building community isn’t as easy as chatting around the coffee maker. Enter workplace play! Having fun together helps teams feel engaged, sparks more happiness and belonging, and builds bridges that lead to other tangible benefits.

Improved retention, engagement and productivity is why play at work can benefit your organization.  A team of coworkers clap, laugh and solicit high fives.

Improved Retention, Engagement, and Productivity

Losing staff takes a heavy toll. It costs time and money, it disrupts your workflow, and it weakens morale while undermining your recruiting efforts. But you can win the fight against employee turnover. Making play part of your team culture helps build relationships, strengthens bonds, and promotes the kind of cohesive teamwork that people will stay for.

Mental and Physical Health

Thriving companies understand that employee wellbeing is the cornerstone of their success. Workplace play promotes physical and mental health, reduces stress and burnout, and creates opportunities for social interaction—the secret ingredient that makes the benefits of movement even better.

Creativity and Innovation

New ideas are essential for growth, and workplace play is a great enabler when it comes to creative thinking. It builds trust and ignites free-flowing energy that encourages everyone to let their imagination run wild. Play also breaks down barriers of hierarchy, making it easier for those who work out of the spotlight to share their ideas confidently.

Culture and Happiness

Your work environment, like your garden, grows according to what it’s fed. Workplace play delivers positive experiences, shared laughter, and meaningful connections, all of which promote a culture of contagious happiness. People thrive together instead of struggling in isolation, and they bring that sunny outlook to everything they do.
