The Set-Up

We create and promote office pools that are custom-made for your organization.

We maximize participation by providing promotional email templates to get your teams excited about this unique experience. 

And if we need to, we'll shoot a custom video to pull people off the fence & into the pool!



The Lift

We handle the settings of the pool and field all technical questions from participants to ensure a smooth experience for everyone.  

We add your company's branding to the pool and our messaging to ensure you get credit for investing in this experience on behalf of your employees.



The Videos

Throughout your event, we record custom videos to discuss the participants and outcomes in your pool.

We give call-outs, shout-outs, and everything in-between! This is where the engagement gets an incredible boost!

The Awards

Included with your event are several custom awards (virtual badges) that we hand-out for various accomplishments in the pool. There are badges for winners and losers alike, which boosts engagement of all participants throughout the full duration of the event. 

And of course we've got trophies...
