Toronto company uproots to a pub for the World Cup

Adbloc Media employees don't have to make excuses in order to catch the game

Peter Kobayashi said he wanted to avoid hearing cheesy excuses from his employees during the World Cup.

“I knew we had to come up with something to make it a productive time in the office.”

So, the Adbloc Media partner decided to uproot his company to a pub during the World Cup games.

“We figured out what infrastructure we’d need so we could still do whatever we would in our regular office,” he said.

The company has a space reserved in the corner of the Bier Markt, where they set up laptops, scanners and even a portable printer.

“Then we invited clients to join us and give them a spot where they could hook up to our infrastructure.”

So far, 15 different clients have come to see the spot.

    That is brilliant. More companies should act like this.
