Join Companies Like Nike and Subaru in Harnessing the Power of Play

  1. Updates

Do you want to cultivate stronger relationships among your employees while also making an impact on your community?

We recently had the pleasure of facilitating a Corporate Play Day for Nike’s Global Finance team, which helped foster increased employee satisfaction and collaboration among the staff.

At these lively, interactive team-building experiences, participants learn signature Playworks games and strategies and then hop onto a Playworks school playground to play with the students supported by our staff.

We recommend a minimum of five employees and can usually accommodate up to 30 at a single school. Play Days can be structured to run an efficient two hours or can expand to a half-day immersion in play, team-building, and volunteering.

The staff at Subaru find our Play Days so valuable that they arrange one for their team every year! Contact our development manager, Shanna Seesz, to schedule a Play Day and experience firsthand the transformative power of positive play—for yourself, your team, and for the kids you’ll meet.
