Impromptu fun is serious business at Pocket Gems. Team members are encouraged to take breaks for competitive ping pong sessions—and what started out as a spontaneous work break has taken on a life of its own. Now a robust and competitive league, the Pocket Gems Ping Pong League most recent accomplishment was turning the office into a Ping Pong Stadium during happy hour and crowning the winner of both the singles and doubles leagues.
Pocket Gems has invested making its office an amazing place to work—and in getting everyone involved in the effort. Each team member is given $100 to use in a creative way that contributes to the office environment and work space for everyone to enjoy. Employees frequently pool their funds for big-ticket items—which have ranged from a ping pong table to a keg. The result? An office that Pocket Gems employees find a fun and an inspiring place to work.
