Why should you play games with coworkers?

Remote work can seem like a never-ending web of emails, camera-off video calls, and dinging Slack notifications. If that sounds boring to you, it definitely sounds boring to your team.

Playing fun games with your team is an instant way to brighten up everyone’s day and maybe even get a laugh (or two) from Dave in accounting!

Gamifying the workday revitalizes everyone’s spirit and helps balance those heads-down hours in front of sprawling spreadsheets. Start playing games, and you’ll immediately see a change in your team. 

  • Happiness and productivity go hand in hand, so why not add some fun to the day? 🎉
  • Playing games as a group is proven to increase social bonds, which benefits work relationships. 👯
  • You’ll get to know your team more intimately as you socialize outside the office (virtual or physical). 🤝
