PepTalk’s Biggest Workplace Championship EVER - The Afterburner - Starts Wednesday 15th June.

This game will offer you the tools to help cultivate inspiration, rekindle your drive and refine your self care. Compete head to head against other companies to discover the secret sauce to unlocking peak performance that will help give you and your team the edge with the evolution of work.

Why “The Afterburner” is our biggest workplace championship EVER!

Fire up your teams, battle against other companies and go all in for PepTalk’s Workplace Championship - the Afterburner! 

This year is all about harnessing the power of full team engagement and realistic, transformative learning to win! The Afterburner offers teams and individuals a mix of learning and action-based challenges to complete to gain knowledge, develop skills, build confidence both personally and professionally, and of course compete against other companies.

The Afterburner Workplace Championship will help you and your team: 

  • Align your focus
  • Upgrade your resilience
  • Infuse your passions
  • Capture your purpose
  • Have some fun as a team outside of the daily grind 

How does it work?

PepTalk believes early, small, consistent action stems the tide. Insights need to be acted on quickly and consciously measured to fully understand their impact. 

The Afterburner helps teams grow, learn and 'show up' together.

By connecting the individual parts through a series of gamified actions/challenges to tackle collective issues of the team. This enables you to stay ahead of issues that might get in the way of the team’s greatness through always-on sentiment tracking & measurement.

This 2 week game will offer you the tools to help cultivate inspiration, rekindle your drive and refine your self care. 

Create a team, compete head to head against other companies and chase the leaderboard to win! Discover the secret sauce to unlocking peak performance that will help give you and your team the edge with the evolution of work.
