Filipino Companies Organize A Company Sportsfest Using Larong Pinoy Games

The Traditional Filipino Street Games finds its home once again back into the hearts of Filipinos, as adults re-discovered the fun of playing Larong Pinoy during Company Sports Fests; bonding with fellow-employees, and building  relationships like real “kababata’s”, with breathing  energy. It is a game everybody knows.  It is a game that anyone can play with a youthful spirit. 

The Filipino Street Games have been with us for over a century.  In today’s modern age of technology, the games are very much alive, bringing fun in communities, schools, and lately, as a team-building sports fest in local corporations.Human Resource Department personnel saw the values that it brings to employees, as it bonds young and old together in activities that everyone can play. Filipino Team building is more than just dragging employees to the usual basketball intramurals or having someone give them a lecture on why it’s important to work together. People learn best when they’re moving around, interacting, and working together on fun challenges.

Since the 1980’s there have been many new sports and innovative games — Triathlon, Xtreme Sports, Cross Games, Fun Runs, etc.  In Y2008, many companies have opted to launch sports fest using the Traditional Filipino Street Games as platform form team-building sports fests. With Larong Pinoy, employees THINK FILIPINO.

larong-pinoy-company-sports-festThere’s more than one way to improve the level of employee engagement in a company. Using Larong Pinoy is a unique platform to engage employees, creating youthful energy and fun community atmosphere at the workplace. It triggers sharing of personal experiences and insights that leads to intimate bonding.

The selection of Larong Pinoy as a Sports Fest Activity is intended to involve employees into doing an alternative event instead of the usual western sports, to make the company affair fun and truly Filipino.

It is a fact that only a few employees get to play in the usual sports like basketball, volleyball, or other western sports; with Larong Pinoy everybody can play — from executives, to staff, to clerks, to general service employees.

It’s a game everybody knows.  It’s a game everyone can enjoy — even the non-sporty type.  Larong Pinoy challenges employees & staff to re-learn the Filipino Street Games blended with team building values and youthful camaraderie in the office.  With Larong Pinoy as sports fest platform, the team bonding goals will flow naturally among employees and staff, internally at the office even before the day of the event.

What Happens When Companies Decide To Use Larong Pinoy As Sportsfest Platform?

Internally at the Office

  • Larong Pinoy triggers each and every employee to talk about the games, as well as their experience about it in the past — reviewing what they know, and definitely remembering their childhood memories.  It brings out the child in everyone when they relate to one another, making the office alive with camaraderie.
  • It triggers individual exploration, even making young people consult elderly employees who are knowledgeable about the games.  It is a light and fun bridge for office bonding.
  • Larong Pinoy is a great CommuniTeam bonding platform for employees before the event, while they practice the games together.

Then, During The Event

  • Larong Pinoy engages employees with a unique sporting experience (definitely different from the usual basketball or track racing). In all types of games, everyone can play — young our old, line or staff.  And, even non-players have the fun of watching co-employees execute and compete in the games.  It’s a different kind of fun.
  •  There is total team bonding with fun-filled cooperation that naturally flow amongst participants.  Larong Pinoy leaves no physical hurt or emotional feelings (unlike rough sports like basketball), because  it’s all child-like fun games and thrills that are so Pinoy.
  • The Larong Pinoy sports fest impart a youthful and unforgettable experience among employees. The youthful atmosphere that it creates will make them feel as if they all grew up together.  Aside from CommuniTeam Building, it builds employee relationships.

Palarong Pinoy: A Fun Team-Building Sports Fest

Palarong Pinoy: A Fun Team-Building Sports Fest

More and more Filipino corporations are organizing Palarong Pinoy sports fests. Over 100 companies have held Larong Pinoy Corporate Mini-Olympic Events.  Human Resource Managers have testified that a Larong Pinoy even is truly a one-of-kind activity that leave lasting impression on employees, and bring out the best in each and everyone.

Unlike Basketball or any of the usual western sports activities, Larong Pinoy is a game where everybody will be able to easily participate in.  Even employees who don’t want play enjoys the event — cheering, “jeering” and supporting the teams.  Iba ang Larong Pinoy.  Ito ang tunay na Laro nating mga Pinoy.

A Larong Pinoy  company sports fest is both for young and old employees, for male and female, and for everybody who’s every inch a Filipino.

Magna Kultura started advocating Palarong Pinoy company sports fests in 2009 as a way of promoting patriotism among adults in a fun way.  Since then, the word spread that companies could have an alternative sporting event other than the usual western games.  Companies have been requesting Magna Kultura to organize their sports fest not only during summer, but any month of the year.

Magna Kultura organizes the games like a real Olympics with Tournament Systems, Referees, Game Marshals. Employees are grouped into teams with team captains.  And competitions are conducted with matches on Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Jumping Rope, Sipang Bilangan, and various Pinoy Relay Races with timed heats & team scores tabulated.

But what makes it even great is that, everyone who plays the game with their fellow- employees gets the feeling like they are childhood playmates (magkababata).  The activity becomes a unique team-bonding experience.  The experience goes beyond the event as employees cherish the thoughts of the games through-out the year.

To build a corporate family, let employees play like children.  Because employees work hard — let them play hard!  A Sports Fest Team Bonding Activity can be held anytime of the year.  It doesn’t have to be summer.
