Can Playmobil make you a better employee?
The Washington Post took a deep dive into the world of Playmobil Pro, an "innovative modeling system for professionals," which brings Playmobil figures into offices so employees could creatively "role play" or "find new business solutions" or "visualize stakeholders" or "bring theoretical discussions to life."
The idea, the article says, is similar to the Lego Serious Play model, which uses toys to facilitate training for employees and employers.
"Guy Stephens, based near London, a facilitator who uses Lego Serious Play in his job as a corporate trainer for one of the world's largest technology companies. As Stephens sees it, using toys in corporate settings can have significant benefits. 'It takes people to a deeper, more emotional level,'" Jason Wilson writes.
