There is a lot of talk about company culture in the last few years, and for good reason. It’s important! Culture is an organization’s operating environment. It dictates the behavior, activities, attitudes values and beliefs of the organization and its employees. Every company has a culture. What’s yours like? Does it provide a healthy balance of work and creativity? Or is it nose to the grind for 10+ hours a day 5 days a week? There is a cost to ignoring culture and there are many benefits for those businesses that choose to pay close attention to it. We believe by incorporating table tennis and UnPlugNPlay into your organization you can:
- Increase employee morale
- Decrease employee turnover
- Giver your company culture a much needed kick in the pants
- Improve Employee Performance
- Attract and Retain Talent
- Facilitate Collaboration
- Create and Innovative Culture
- Impress Your Clients Partners
A Columbia University study found that companies with a great company culture had only a 13.9% employee turnover rate, while ones that lacked culture had a staggering 48.4% turnover and could cost your company up to $25k depending on the employee and position.
Today more and more people are becoming disconnected from their real lives because they are spending much more time plugged into their electronic devices. Tables tennis is a fun and practical way to encourage coworkers to step away from their screens for a few minutes and clean their mind.
“Don’t be surprised if your employees show up to work earlier, stay later & bring their own rackets and balls to work. Table Tennis brings people together like no other sport.”
Let’s face it. We all need to take a break or two during our work day. I’m not talking about a walk to the kitchen to grab some coffee, to stretch legs, to go to the bathroom or to waste time. I am talking about a real break to clear our heads, get our blood flowing, talk to a coworker or just laugh. What if the one of the things your employees needed to stay more productive and more focused was to pick up a paddle and challenge a coworker to a quick game of ping pong? How do you think their overall morale and job performance would improve? What if your boss invited you to a meeting and told you not to forget your paddle? Wouldn’t it be a great feeling knowing that a win and bragging rights were well within your reach? Not to mention who doesn’t want to beat their boss or manager at a game of ping pong?
Did you know that customer retention rates are 18% higher on average when employees are highly engaged? Sadly, 50.3% of US employees identify as “not engaged” and additional 16.8% are “actively disengaged.”
Why UnplugNPlay is a Brilliant Idea
Your employees are looking for a purpose. They want to believe in the mission of the company and the managers leading it. And they want to enjoy their time at the office. After all, a job is a huge part of a person’s life. They don’t want to waste that time in an unhealthy and non-fun environment. T
Table tennis can bring about the positive change you are looking for. When people play table tennis they tend to be more relaxes, more competitive, and more social.
“An UnPlugNPlay Zone can be the place employees gather at your company. It enables people from various departments to make new friends to discuss business in a casual setting. Regardless of level in the organization, people get to know each other. This is first step towards a more engaged workforce.”
