Making The Company Sportsfest A Mini-Olympics Event


The Traditional Filipino Games are back in the mainstream of society, and private corporations have been using it as a Team-Building Company Sportsfest, with a Mini-Olympics flavor.



Filipino corporations have made Larong Pinoy a Mini-Olympics Sport Fest, energizing employees with games that they use to play in their childhood years. It's a great way to build camaraderie.


Over a thousand companies have re-discovered the fun of the Larong Pinoy games, and has organized it as Mini-Olympics event.


Human Resource Managers have testified that a Larong Pinoy Sports Fest is truly a one-of-kind event-activity that leaves lasting impression among employees. It bonds employees like real “magkababata” (i.e., childhood friends). 


For many years, many companies have been organizing popular sports like basketball or volleyball; and usually, only younger employees get to play in the tournaments.  The Filipino Games has become an alternative to implementing the usual Western sports activities.  



Larong Pinoy is an activity where both young and old employees can play and enjoy, (unlike other sports where only the younger generation can play).

 
In Larong Pinoy games, everybody --- young and old --- are able to participate in the games.  Even employees who did not play enjoy the event, cheering and supporting their teams in every game.  The fun is unforgettable.  And best of all, employees who do not know each other become familiar with everyone.

Magna Kultura Foundation is the organizer of the Larong Pinoy company sportsfests. The organization is the national advocate of the Traditional Filipino Street Games.  



In the Y-2008, HRDs of Filipino companies started calling on Magna Kultura to organize team-building activities using Larong Pinoy games as platform for bonding employees.  

Magna Kultura organized the company sports fests, hassle-free for the HRDs: from planning to implementation, with tournament systems & procedures, game manuals with playing rules for each and every Filipino game; and running the games with referees and game marshals. The company’s organizing committee just sat back and relaxed; playing with the rest of their fellow-employees. 

Magna Kultura continues to conduct Palarong Pinoy sports fests for companies, on top of their on-going sports outreach programs in schools and barangays.  Magna Kultura works with HRDs and sports committees to conduct “proudly Pinoy” games that transforms the Filipino work-force into Communi-Teams.

Organize A Company Sports Fest, Hassel-Free!

Corporate Mini-Olympics Are More Fun With Larong Pinoy.  It's A Team-Building Sports Fest Where Young And Old Employees Can Play.

IT'S FUN. IT'S CHALLENGING. AND IT BREATHES YOUTHFUL BONDING AMONG EMPLOYEES.




In the past, basketball and other ballgames are organized and only a few people to play --- mostly the younger employees. But now, both young and old employees play together with the Traditional Filipino street games in an exciting mini-Olympics format.  And company sports fests come alive. 

 
Human Resource Department staff have discovered the benefits of using the Filipino games as sports fest platform: it does not only bring fun, but creates warm camaraderie among employees --- making them feel like childhood playmates, i.e. "mag-kababata".

Magna Kultura Foundation conducts the sports fest like a real Olympics event, which gives employees the grand feeling of being in a professional arena. 


The games are officiated by referees and marshals using the Official Tournament Rules instituted by Magna Kultura Foundation, the national advocate of the Filipino Games.



In organizing the company sports fest, Magna Kultura partners with the HRD and Sports Committee; internally making the event a team-building activity within the company.  Teams are formed with Team Captains, co-captains and even playing Coaches for each and every game.  Game manuals are provided by Magna Kultura, along with team line-up sheets and other vital tournament materials.



Games like Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Luksong Tinik, Luksong Lubid, and other Pinoy Games are as challenging as any Western sport.  It requires agility, skills, and strategy.   Employees match players against other department teams.  Even cheer chants are created to rally team spirit.  And, just by being Filipino, makes it more fun.



As employees plan and practice the games, a team-building atmosphere is created inside the offices.   The employee bonding solidly permeates that, even if they don’t win on the day of the event, they become satisfied with the friendship they have built in the process.

Fun Sports Fest For Filipino Companies


Organize a Larong Pinoy Mini-Olympics Sports Fest for your company.  Larong Pinoy is a favorite sports fest activity for many Filipino companies because these are games where young and old employees will be surely able to play. On top of that, beyond playing on the day of the event, the games is capable of building strong employee relationships. 
  
 

The Traditional Filipino Street Games continues to be a favorite sports fest activity for local companies. Private business corporations continues to request Magna Kultura Foundation (the national proponent of the games) to organize the Larong Pinoy event as a company sports fest activity.  



Over a thousand companies have held Larong Pinoy Corporate Mini-Olympic Events.  Human Resource Managers have testified that a Larong Pinoy event is truly a one-of-kind activity that leave lasting impression on employees, and bring out the best in each and everyone.

Human Resource Department heads saw the Filipino Street Games as an effective instrument for employee bonding.  Indeed, the games are able to make employees from different departments easily get acquainted with each other; and, like childhood playmates, the bonding experience goes beyond weeks, even months, after the event.


The Larong Pinoy Sports Fest event excites employees into doing things that they did in the childhood days, especially the elder adults.  From day one, after HRD announces Larong Pinoy as the sports fest activity, the office environment become high on enthusiasm; making employees talk about the games, their childhood experience, and even practicing within the office. It brings the corporate community alive.
 

In the past, most companies have been doing the regular basketball, volleyball and badminton events, until Human Resource Department staff discovered the fun experience that Larong could bring; on top of the team-building capability it can offer. 

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.  Kakaiba ang Larong Pinoy.  


The event is executed like a real Olympics event --- with professional officiating & tournament system with an Olympic sports music scoring ambience. Employees will be grouped into teams, with their own team captains. And competitions are conducted with matches on Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Jumping Rope, Sipang Bilangan, and various Pinoy Relay Races.


From planning to implementation, Magna Kultura executes everything with a Tournament Systems & Procedures manual, with Referees and Game Marshals, the Emcee announcement.  Magna Kultura provides the Game Materials, Registration Forms, the Program Scripts, and everything that makes for an Olympic-like event ---- so that your sports committee can sit back, relax, and just play with the rest on the event day.


A Larong Pinoy company sports fest is both for young and old employees. Everyone who plays the game with their fellow- employees creates a feeling like they are childhood playmates (magkababata).  

Larong Pinoy  Sports Fest is a truly fun corporate-family bonding experience.  And the experience goes beyond the event as employees cherish the thoughts of the games through-out the year.



Treat your employees to a Fun Team-Building Sports Fest where everybody can play: Palarong Pilipino Mini-Olympics for young & old! A Sports Fest Team Bonding Activity can be held anytime of the year.  It doesn’t have to be summer. Build your corporate family into a CommuniTeam now.

Larong Pinoy Games As A Company CSR Activity




For many companies, it’s not enough to make money and satisfy customers. Service to local communities is also part of the company agenda, and they involve their employees in outreach programs. These companies often go the extra mile to give a little something back to their employees, the community, and the world at large. They’ve developed solid reputations for going out and doing some good, turning their success into an opportunity to help others.

For a long time, businesses have given back to society in different ways. The domain for such outreach was based more on concerns and thoughtfulness to help people.  For some companies, business isn’t all about the bottom line. They make strides to be a caring part of society and help out those who live in less fortunate circumstances. They’re companies that know how important Corporate Social Responsibility can be to others.

Chevron Philippines is one of the few examples of those doing Corporate Social Responsibility right. Every year, Chevron Philippines embarks in a program dubbed "Week of Caring, wherein employees of the company engage communities as volunteers. For the second time, the employee-volunteers of Chevron reached out once again the children of Nayon ng Kabataan (in Mandaluyong City), a youth welfare community operated by the Department of Social Welfare Development (DSWD).

During its Week of Caring program, Chevron employees went to Nayon ng Kabataan to play as “big brothers” to the children of Welfareville --- playing Larong Pinoy, the traditional Filipino Street Games.  As coach and playmates, they ran and vigorously played with the children: games like, patintero, luksong tinik, luksong baka, chinese garter, piko, and other Pinoy games.


The choice of Larong Pinoy as an activity aims to provide a light, fun interaction between the Chevron employees and the kids at Nayon ng Kabataan.  The organizers of the Chevron outreach program recognizes the power of Larong Pinoy as a strong vehicle for community engagement and interaction.  The traditional Filipino street games is a cultural treasure, well-loved by many Filipinos even today.  Many people are still unable to own high-tech game gadgets, computers, or smartphones with game applications; thus, Larong Pinoy is still a fun alternative among many of the children.


Having a social good culture makes your employees know they are working for something that is bigger than themselves; their business is not one dimensional and more importantly, it cares about people.  There are new breed of corporate individuals who believe that what you put into the world is exactly what you’re going to get out of it. People want to do things that matter; companies that encourage employees to participate in volunteerism and giving back are creating fulfilling environments to work in.

CSR to be meaningful has to reach out to the large majority of our people who are not only without purchasing power, but are fundamentally deprived of basic livelihood. There are companies stand out as prime examples of how social responsibility can be productively coupled with sound strategies to advance goodwill, while building sustainable and impressive businesses. They provide the leadership to demonstrate how marketers can pursue both objectives simultaneously. As such, socially conscious companies have stepped up their efforts with increasing effectiveness and productivity. It is an impressive movement and one that invites society at large to do even more.

Magna Kultura Foundation salutes Chevron Philippines for making Larong Pinoy their choice of activity for engaging communities.  The interaction between the employees of Chevron and children of Nayon ng Kabataan will last a lifetime of remembrance.
