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.

This is Magna Kultura Foundation's advocacy to
revive the Games of Our Heritage ("Laro ng Lahi")
back in the mainstream of Philippine society.
