Glowing Global knows that work will always be an essential part of life. There are also other activities to partake in that helps you make bonds with the people you work with. “We’re firm believers of finding different ways to include our workers in group activities. This not only gives them a chance to try something different, but it gives them a chance to make professional relationships stronger,” says Ricco Katona, managing director of Glowing Global. Recently in Manchester, Roxy Ball Room opened up, and we’re excited to see what they have in store!
On their site they write:
“Though we like to keep things very casual, we are serious about gaming. At Roxy Ball Room Manchester you’ll find:
– 10 x Butterfly ping pong tables
– 8 x Sam K American pool tables
– 8 x custom made beer pong tables
– Tournament area for our most competitive players
– UV gaming area with ping pong and beer pong
– Exclusive spaces for gaming and socialising, including a VIP room
We refresh our gaming equipment frequently to ensure it’s top of the range, and our staff are always on hand to explain the rules or set up a little tournament.
It’s not just about the games at Roxy though – a proper social hub needs great food, drink and tunes too. Enjoy rock and indie classics while tucking into fresh dough pizzas, handmade burgers bursting with flavour and our US-style small plates: jalapeño poppers, mac ‘n’ cheese bites, buffalo chicken wings and all other manner of tantalising goodness.”
“This is the perfect place to hang out, kick back and make time to get to know your crew members. It’s integral to growth because we have a very collaborative environment. Due to this, we find that a crew that has fun together, does well professionally together also,” says Ricco Katona of Glowing Global. At Glowing Global, we noticed that spending time with colleagues outside of work in a creative and fun setting not only leads to enjoyment, but it also leads to higher productivity rates when they are at work on their day-to-day tasks. “The environment becomes a bit lighthearted. Everyone knows they are working, but the company culture becomes affected in a positive sense when activities and time are spent with colleagues outside of work as well!” says Ricco Katona of Glowing Global. Another important factor from this theory is that it increases worker retention. When you spend a certain amount of time with a person, you build a connection, and that link creates understanding and communication. This is why we promote healthy activities outside of work so that work, in general, becomes easier on a day-to-day.
