While most of us might reach for a Red Bull when it hits the afternoon and we don’t have time for a nap between conference calls, the iconic brand is taking their support of the modern worker a step further. After the challenging year and a half we’ve had, Red Bull have launched the Red Bull Office Games, which are intended to show you and your team a good time, with some pretty epic prizes to boot.
Coming in at the winning prize is Red Bull literally throwing you and your pals an office party, and all you have to do to have a shot at the big shebang is to enter the tournament. Create a team, invite your colleagues and play one (or all three) office games to earn your “wings” and get to the top of the leaderboard. If you don’t come first, you can nevertheless win some of the other nifty prizes that are up for grabs, including a few months’ worth of Red Bull supplies and some time with a high-performance Red Bull coach to restore your motivation. The comp closes at 11:59pm on August 31, 2021. With the tournament being hosted digitally, remote workers and those in physical proximity can partake together to nab the winning goods.
Quoting the experts, research by Manchester University in the ‘It Pays to Play’ report actually points to the fact “that taking part in fun activities at work has a positive effect on the level of employees’ psychological wellbeing – leading to higher productivity, lower sickness levels and increased creativity.” Basically, procrastinating your work and playing the Office Games could actually be seen as a productive act of self-care, so get moving.
