At this Virginia company, the Culture Squad organizes the annual Office Olympics, during which Snaggers are divided into competing nations—and dress the part.

Here are YouTube highlights of the 2012 Games:

Competition is good for business

According to a post by Veronica @omnidesigns:

If you’re interested in not only building up employee productivity, but encouraging a greater sense of community among your staff, hosting a friendly office competition is a great way to go about it. Announce the competition in advance along with the prizes so that everyone on your team understands the stakes from the start. Your employees will be racing each other to the finish, but they will also be pulled closer together in the process. For rewards, consider gift cards, a nice bottle of wine, extra vacation days or a bonus on the next paycheck.

Today’s Lagniappe (a little something extra thrown in for good measure) – I nominate this for an event:

The Green Goldfish Project is a quest to find 1,001 examples of marketing lagniappe for employees. Green goldfish are the little signature extras given to employees. They help differentiate a company, increase employee retention and drive positive WoM.
