Boost Employee Engagement with this Activity

Sept. 18, 2018

This common activity boosts employee engagement and reduces stress and anxiety for modern offices in less than fifteen minutes.

In 2000, Robert Blackwell Jr. sponsored the International Ping Pong Festival in Chicago and was fascinated by the number of people lined up to play table tennis. Inspired by how the game helps people disconnect from technology and connect with other people, he started Killerspin in 2001. The luxury table tennis company aims to create engaging experiences and develop strong relationships through play, an activity that is often missing in the traditional workspace but is now increasingly available in modern offices and reduces stress and anxiety.
