Corporate Recess: Do Well and Feel Well

  1. Updates

Help your colleagues fulfill their New Year’s resolutions by bringing Playworks to your office. Beginning January 15 through February 15, Playworks will offer 15 free Corporate Recesses as part of the Boston Moves for Health physical activity challenge. Corporate Recess is a series of interactive activities that get employees moving while building effective teams.

Experienced Playworks staff will transform your conference room into a playground, get your employees away from their desks and engage your team in classic recess activities such as tag and 4-square during their lunch break. In less than 45 minutes, Playworks Corporate Recess develops effective work teams while increasing employee physical activity.

Playworks corporate recess was an organized, creative and fun way to engage BBH employees. Not only did we squeeze a workout into our lunch break, but it was a great internal networking opportunity, and most importantly, we learned more about a great organization. Our corporate recess was just the beginning of a wonderful collaborative relationship, and now our employees volunteer monthly with Playworks and the students at the Eliot School.

Join companies like Brown Brothers Harriman, Blue Cross Blue Shield and New Balance who have made recess part of their corporate wellness program. To find out how Playworks Corporate Recess can get your employees all playing on the same team contact Jon Gay, jgay@playworks.org.
