Perhaps the first question that comes to mind is why the name “Playoffice”? How can these two words possibly have anything in common?

Most people would agree that the office environment is one for “work”, and that “work” is the contrary of “play”, which connotes a waste of time, and that office efficiency is calculated on the correct use of time…

Some might say too, that only children play, or at least those adults who are not serious!… We have another point of view on the subject.
