Corporate employees have 'life beyond desktop' in Gurgaon
'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy' is a well known proverb, which perfectly fits the bill for a corporate sporting event organising company known as Game Changers in Delhi/NCR. They organise various sporting events in Gurgaon for official teams from corporate sectors. In due process, the passion amongst the corporate employees re-ignite, bringing back childhood memories, where they spent a number of hours playing various sports with their friends.

Nikhil Gulati, CEO, Game Changers said, ''We started in August 2013 with the vision of providing stress free solutions to corporate employees and pursue their passion of sports, which exists in everyone of us from our childhood.'' Right from our days in school, sports has been an important recreational activity, which the students enjoy to the hilt.

Gradually, after passing out from school, one does not get much time to play as everyone pays greater attention to their professional career. Very few turn towards sports as their career and those who don't are devoid of any sports activities. With such competitions in the offing, working professionals are given a lease of life via various sports competitions. ''Till date, three cricket, two football tournaments have been organised. Badminton and Table Tennis competition have also been organised,'' said the CEO. 

Sanjay Saini is one such team member from UCOL, a Delhi law firm, which has reached the finals of the cricket tournament scheduled to be played this Sunday. ''With such events, we are able to re-live our childhood memories, where we used to play so much,'' said Sanjay. The employees enjoy themselves on and off the field, in spite of the competitive nature of the sporting event. He added, ''It is time for us to have fun as well.''

One does not get much time to have fun while working due to the working pressure that exists in respective offices, but participating in the event reflects a complete different picture. Siddharth Chaturvedi, captain of VSPL, one of the finalist teams said, ''The event is very different from our workplace, as in the workplace, we know what happens - daily routine, same faces. But, while playing for our corporate team, we meet new people and interact with them. It also gives a feeling of freedom.''

These sporting activities are a perfect recreational activity for the employees as well. After slogging hard during weekdays in the office, the employees can come out and have fun on Saturdays and Sundays. ''On weekend, it is time for us to chill and relax. Playing in the event helps us in recharging our batteries and also reduces the stress levels,'' said Siddharth.

Apart from acting as a stress buster, playing together as a unit can also be treated as a team building activity. Here the office hierarchies also goes for a toss, as even the bosses mingle well with each and everyone, which may not necessarily be true during the office hours. Sanjay said, ''Even the bosses play with us, during which they are also very friendly. They are also like us (employees).''

Some employees even bring their family members together and they treat the event as a family outing. In this manner, they strike a right balance between family members, their passion and colleagues as well. The participants treat the event as re-energiser for the long work pending in their respective offices.
