Office fun…

Office fun…

‘Work hard, play hard’… the popular mantra that decorates cultures across the world.

Here at the WizPar office we have obviously nailed the ‘work hard’ part of the deal (local rumour has it that we have never be seen outside WizPar HQ in daylight… similar to vampires maybe, but obviously less pale and ‘bitey’). However, we decided it was time to pay a little more attention to the ‘play hard’ side – we want to reward ourselves for the gruelling long hours we commit to making WizPar reach it’s full, beautiful potential. We decided WizPar needed a sharp injection of fun! 

Now this is a harder task than it first appears. ‘Playing’ is a subjective activity, a difficult balance to strike within the group. It requires baby-steps, an awkward prising away from our formal working habits, a leap of faith towards connection with our forgotten and slightly neglected inner-child… basically playing is harder work than we realised… (sigh). 

Taking this tough reality on board, the WizPar team thought long and hard concerning this quite vital matter, and agreed that we would begin by making a small, yet decisive act. Our ‘fun’ needed to be something that helps smooth over a tough day, something that is popular across the board – versatile, engaging, reliably day enhancing… a tried, tested and successful addition to any hard day…

Eureka…then it hit us. An inspiring, day-shattering idea. O yes, how could we have not thought of this sooner. Cancel the zoo animals, the cheerleaders and the hot tub… bring in the new selection of biscuits! An exhilarating array of all shapes and sizes, dazzling WizPar managers, employees and guests alike. Custard creams, jam doughnuts, bourbons and chocolate Hobnobs – a biscuit bonanza that has blown eyes, minds and tastebuds. Although we still do not leave the office during daylight (the biscuits actually incentivise us to stay cosy in the WizPar humble abode) suddenly our work plighted days are beautifully broken up by the biscuit brigade.

Obviously the journey has only just started, we still have some more ‘play hard’ thinking to embark on, but we feel this is a tasty digestive at the beginning of a beautiful meal 😉 …
