Confinement, curfew, teleworking! There are so many obligations that make the management of teams in companies particularly complex. HR departments and internal communication are constantly looking for solutions to maintain the link between employees and strengthen their sense of belonging to the company. This is why Office Fantasy now proposes to partner with these players by offering them its innovative and unifying concept: the organization of a 100% online prediction contest of the biggest sporting events. And with the World Cup 2022 Qatar pointing the tip of its nose, employees will be able to brainstorm and launch their bets. A simple and ingenious idea to give meaning to life in a company.
Office Fantasy was launched with the idea of developing a prediction contest that would allow companies to speak at these major events through a private platform, 100% customizable, multilingual and above all, accessible to all employees, football fans or not.
The platform was created with the aim of democratizing sports prediction competitions between colleagues in companies and making them an ultra-friendly animation that generates good humour in companies! We have covered more than ten major competitions in Football. Many companies have joined Office Fantasy for their teams, whether they are teleworking or dispatched to various agencies, offices, subsidiaries, franchises or in the field.
Indeed, no one could have predicted the health crisis we’re experiencing. As soon as the first lockdown was announced, we understood that the World Cup 2022 would be postponed. But we didn’t change anything in our original goals and schedules. It’s because there was no news about the postponement. So, we kept going. The success exceeded our expectations. They offered companies original, quality and unifying platforms for team-building even when teams were settled remotely, permanently or temporarily. This year, we’re focusing all our efforts on Office Fantasy. It’s because we’re facing an increasingly strong demand than usual because, beyond being unifying, it’s a large-scale operation that respects health standards.
The Covid crisis has shattered what fundamentally made the life of a company: shared emotions. No one was entitled to his surprise birthday at the workshop organized by his colleagues. How to be satisfied with a virtual arrival or departure port?
For the past year, for a large part of the workforce, everyday life has resembled “Work, Visio, Sleep”. Managers have not necessarily been prepared to manage teams from home. Everyone had to adapt very quickly. On the other hand, many workers remained at the front in customer services. It’s important to thank and reward them. The year was, unfortunately, poor in corporate events. Employees were deprived of end-of-year parties, after-works, Christmas trees, etc.
World Cup 2022 Qatar is an unmissable opportunity to recreate social ties in the company.
We’re convinced that such an operation will (re)put a good mood in the company and create strong emotions between employees for more than a month.
Our two typical clienteles, namely the HR departments and those of internal communication, both evoke the need to return to a normal corporate life.
Most of the conversations in the corridors, at the coffee machine, in the elevator, and in the canteen evaporated overnight. All this leads to complex situations: a newly hired employee who has never had the opportunity to get to know his colleagues, two close employees before the crisis who hardly exchange anymore, an employee present in the company for 20 years who could not celebrate his retirement.
It’s obvious that many of our customers fear a drop in productivity if the situation were to last. At this stage, they did not mention a decrease in it on the part of employees but rather other cyclical difficulties leading to delays and, therefore, additional costs.
It’s already reinventing itself!
It’s obvious that this crisis has taught us many lessons, which would have taken several decades to accept. This is perhaps one of the only positive points of this crisis. It has been a tremendous accelerator in the transformation of companies to new methods of communication. Today, any employee in the world knows how to use a videoconferencing tool or even online project management.
In this context, many companies have realized that bringing 100% of their employees 100% of the time to the office was an aberrance, not only from an economic point of view but in terms of team productivity. We will therefore see the adoption of new tools that will make it possible to transpose what we were doing in a company in a completely digitalized way. And in this landscape, we completely have our place.
Millions of people worldwide are going to follow this major sports tournament. It’ll be broadcast free of charge. An HR director can therefore be 100% sure that a good part of his employees will be interested in the competition. Speaking at this event, which is also around a fun animation, is therefore completely relevant, especially in the current context.
The playing field is endless for us. Our clientele ranges from the local startups of 10 employees to the large group of 1,000 employees operating across five continents.
We’ve designed a platform that appeals to all employees of the company, whether they are football fans or not. Everyone has a chance! Moreover, many employees seek advice from their spouses, children, and relatives before entering. This team building goes beyond the professional circle, and it also indirectly includes the personal sphere developing a sense of pride in working for a company that cares about the morale of its employees by putting the fun into their daily lives.
We have an exclusively B2B positioning. We know that our customer’s time is precious, which is why Office Fantasy is dedicated to each customer in order to streamline their experience. We provide them with everything necessary (personalized platform, ready-to-send communication device, animation kits, etc.) so that the operation is a great success in the company.
Moreover, we are quite proud to see that Office Fantasy reaches records of internal mobilization with an average participation rate of 81% among our customers.
We will continue to improve Office Fantasy and develop other 100% online products that will add fun to the corporate life of employees through unifying and engaging games. And for companies that want to set up Office Fantasy for the World Cup 2022 Qatar, just fill out the form below. See you soon!
