Bringing play into the business world

Despite the occasional stuffed-shirt boss looking over my shoulder and saying “This isn’t playtime!” some of the best jobs I’ve ever had incorporate a level of playfulness, and the results have always proven to be effective.

A favorite exhortation among fast-food bosses is, “If you’ve got time to lean, you’ve got time to clean!” But a little leaning now and then, and even a little guided playfulness, can go a lot further towards getting employees actively engaged in a corporate goal than will any angry mandate.

Serious business play: Lootok to collaborate with Highline Games

Lootok stands apart from other consulting firms—not only in the depth of our experience, but also in our willingness to challenge conventional thinking about business continuity and crisis management practices. This has never been more true than today. We are proud to announce that Lootok is collaborating with Highline Games to explore how games and “gamification” can breathe new life into risk management programs and practices. Highline Games, co-founded by Eli Weissman and Anthony Litton of Grand Theft Auto and W.E.L.D.E.R. fame, will work with Lootok’s consulting and creative teams to bring gaming methodologies to such topics as BIAs, plan data entry, and program engagement.
