Game On: The Role of Games and Play in the Workplace

Tuesday, March 15
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St

Games and playing have been foundational in developing team dynamics, encouraging learning, and generating creative ideas since we were all on the playground. We're all pre-programmed to connect through play.

This talk will explore the role games play in developing a cohesive environment in the workplace. Lately, co-locating spaces have been moving toward more relaxed, playful environments, with table tennis, video games, and board games all as part of the space. Games and play can not only have a huge impact on the work environment itself, but on the culture and the creative potential of employees as well. How can we help this culture evolve inside of a complex organization?
