CHALLENGE

A series of absurd workplace challenges to make the day that bit weirder.

chats

A bunch of conversation starters to discuss with your nearest and weirdest.

AND soon

you will be...

dropping lyrics into a talk with a customer

debating the secret super power of your boss

Trying to upsell something you don’t have

doing weird walks and blaming it on breakfast

funraising for

Our local mental health charity, that provides support and advice for young people’s emotional health and wellbeing

why are we doing this?

January is a tough time of year for many people, but it's especially tough for people working in retail, hospitality and customer services.

So we've created these two games for anyone who works or has worked in these industries, for the post-Christmas slump.

If you play either game and want to help, we are fundraising for a local charity, 42nd Street, who do amazing work in supporting Manchester's young people, and once supported our CEO!

So we are donating to a cause that's very close to our hearts. 42nd Street offers counselling, mentoring and all kinds of support for Manchester's Young People, and once upon a time supported our CEO in his youth!
