SHELL Bulgaria in 2 Hours for Family https://2h4family.com/shell-bulgaria-in-action/ Wed, 18 Jul 2018 09:52:42 +0000 http://2godzinydlarodziny.pl/?p=3806 Shell Bulgaria for the first time joined the Two Hours for Family campaign. It was an easy choice as it is in full harmony with our work culture. Although the employees of Shell Bulgaria could use flexible working hours and could work from home, we decided that it would be worth offering them two additional hours free time with the family. This is a symbolic sign to the employees that the company truly cares for their personal life and encourages them to spend quality time with their families.

Any flat area
Time:

Participants:
2 people
Accessories:
3 coins, 2 lines or slats, drawing chalk
Game rules:
We draw on the ground a playground – a rectangle measuring approximately 100 cm x 70 cm and mark the gates on the opposite sides. 2 coins are our goalkeepers, the third smaller coin is a ball. We set it in the middle of the field and the players next to it. The starting player, holding the ruler in his hand, hits his coin – the footballer, in such a way that it reflects the coin – the ball. After his movement, the competitor’s turn follows. In such a cycle, players play until one of the players reaches the opponent’s goal. Goal scored is a point. After successful coin action – the ball returns to the starting position in the middle of the field. The game lasts to the previously determined number of points.

CIUPY https://2h4family.com/ciupy/ Wed, 25 Apr 2018 14:59:25 +0000 http://2godzinydlarodziny.pl/?p=2932 Requirements:
You can play anywhere at home, in the yard, at school, on a blanket, on a table, on the ground.

Time:
It depends on the number of players

Participants:
From 2 to….

Accessories:

5 small stones
Game rules:

The fun consists in tossing one stone up and simultaneously grabbing the rest from the ground and catching all in the palm of your hand. We spread stones on the floor. We choose one of them and keep it in our hands. We have to toss him up and at the same time pick up another of the spilled on the ground – we catch a stone lying on the ground so that we can catch the stone we tossed. We toss and catch with the same hand!
Having two stones in hand, we toss one of them and catch another (third) from the ground. Repeat the operation until we catch all five stones in one hand.
When we pass this stage, we start to catch in pairs. Spread four stones back on the ground and toss five up again. This time, however, while it is up, we only bring 2 stones from the ground closer to each other, grab the stone in the air. Only now, again, we throw a stone and collect two stones from the ground, we catch a thrown pebble. And again, one by one – we throw a stone, bring the other two stones nearer to each other, grab the stone.
Remember that all the time we keep in our hands all the pebbles and we throw away only one.
Then, similarly, we catch with threes and finally all four.
The last, most difficult stage is to throw out and catch rocks from the back of your hand: extend your hand, join and straighten your fingers, put stones on the back of your hand on the metacarpus, throw them all up, so as to catch them in the same hand.
If we do not catch, the next player takes the queue.

Microsoft became a partner of the Two Hours for Family campaign https://2h4family.com/microsoft-became-a-partner-of-the-two-hours-for-family-campaign/ Wed, 11 Apr 2018 19:48:07 +0000 http://2godzinydlarodziny.pl/?p=1594 The company is a people and a living organism that has its own needs, aspirations, hopes, as well as fears, worse and better days. Business results, tasks, goals, meetings, challenges, procedures, etc. It’s all everyday in our work. Nevertheless, the factors that affect us and the level of so-called satisfaction, which in the business language we call engagement and motivation to act, can be varied, sometimes prosaic. Sometimes it is crucial how someone will thank us, appreciate us. Of great importance is also how we work with the boss, what relations we have with colleagues and whether we trust each other and support each other.

There is also a private sphere and the question of how to manage time effectively, which is less and less present in today’s dynamic world. Are we able to reconcile our professional life with personal life, relatives and whether we find there a place for our own internal needs and passions. Often, they are tangled in a machine of meetings arranged for us, not having enough time to put their heads above the full calendar and think about what is superior and where we get energy. Meanwhile, life rushes and leaves no vacuum. Everyone should ask themselves the source of his or her energy and cultivate it with care. For many of us this is a family because “2 hours for the family” is an important time for a moment of reflection and being with relatives.

At Microsoft, we believe that work culture is an extremely important element in the implementation of the company’s strategy. Therefore, we try to create a work environment in which there is room for learning, trying new ways of doing things, drawing conclusions from failures and celebrating successes together. We want our employees to act as one team for the success of our clients. Only then can we really have a real impact on the environment. Professional and private life are more and more permeated, and the balance between them is important for the individual and the entire organization. Therefore, we are happy to engage in the “2 hours for the family” campaign, to symbolically express the fact that it is worth creating a work culture that supports employees not only in the implementation of their business tasks, but also in life goals.

If we have companions to play, we can compete in the competition “who will rise more times” or standing in a circle to reject the Hacky Sack to each other – so that it does not fall to the ground. The player who will not accept Hacky Sack, because he will fall to the ground, falls away (another version gets a penalty point). The winner is the one who is the last to stay in the circle (or has the least amount of penalty points).
If there are more players and space, you can arrange a pitch – mark two goals at opposite ends and raise Hacky Sack to the goal of the opponent to score a goal.

We draw the shape of classes on the ground. The game consists of going through eight classes.

The player throws a pebble on the first field – class, stands on one leg, jumps into the field, raises the pebble, jumps the rest of the fields and jumps out, thus trying to complete all eight squares. In the place where the classes are next to each other one jumps on both sides, both on the way to the destination and on the way back. The top jumps up, performs rotation in the air and jumps back. If the player tempts, the next person begins the queue.

The next round: we do not start from the beginning, but from the field where we failed.

„Skucha”/fail is throwing a pebble on an inadequate field, or on a rope, not losing one leg or snapping on a rope.

The winner is the one who first pops up the entire eight classes.
