Esports For Everyone
COMPETING HAS GREAT REAL WORLD BENEFITS
Beyond raising money for great causes, engaging in Afterwork.gg has huge benefits for you and your team! Improve confidence, develop leadership skills, form meaningful bonds and aid mental health.
Solve Difficult Problems Under Pressure
Gaming has been shown to improve attention, multi-tasking and other cognitive abilities like rapid pattern-matching and building mental models. Essential skills for use in a professional capacity.
Team-Play Is Essential To Win
In multiplayer esports it's near impossible to win without coordination. A competitive atmosphere forces teams to learn how to collaborate towards a common goal - stomping their competition!
Shared Connections Unlike Any Other
With people being away from the office they talk less and connect less meaningfully. Friendly competition helps re-stimulate that connection and ultimately leads to better communication.
Stress at work, a busy home life and no decent outlets to release tension and anxiety is having a serious impact on health. Competitive social gaming provides the perfect conduit to vent negative emotion through positive action.
