Everyone knows that shuffleboard is a great way to let loose and relax in the comfort of your own home. However, the game can also be a great way to entice workers into being more productive, take a break from their day job and challenge a fellow employee to a fun shuffleboard tournament.
This is the philosophy behind the designs of some of the internet’s fastest growing companies main offices.
Foursquare, an online program that allows people who frequent certain establishments to “check-in” in exchange for various rewards and promotions, has become a massively popular commodity since it was first introduced back in 2009. Now, with more than 15 million users subscribed to the social network, Foursquare has roughly 100 employees working at its New York City headquarters, which features amenities that wouldn’t be found in most offices.
The cafeteria in the two-story facility features a host of activities in a stylish yet relaxed setting that encourages workers to enjoy themselves. Employees have the option of either sitting on a stool at a bar-style countertop or lounging around on a series of picnic tables splayed throughout the space.
Adjacent to the dining area are a series of ping-pong tables where co-workers can blow off steam and face each other in miniature table-tennis competitions.
Best of all, the office features a 9 foot shuffleboard table for longer, more relaxing tournaments at the end of a hard days work.
The company splits its team between the New York offices and a space in San Francisco, where workers can enjoy a similar laid-back environment while on the job.
If you’d like to bring a little more fun to your office, consider following Foursquare’s lead and bring the game of table shuffleboard to your employees by purchasing one of the quality pieces made by McClure Tables.
