It Pays to PLAY
“All work and no play” makes for a dull workplace…and a costly one.

It Pays to PLAY is a rich resource filled with ideas for play at work—whether in-person, hybrid, or remote—and illustrates how the ROI from play is multi-faceted and exponential. Learn the ways play can be easily and affordably implemented—regardless of your industry—benefiting everyone from the most junior employee to the C-suite right through to the end customer. It truly does pay to play.
