Inside the CBS Radio building, the web team is situated up on the second floor, removed from the account executives, sales managers, marketing personnel, and other important folk . Anyway, on the second floor, the internet geeks, who are under constant pressure to be creative and produce click-worthy content on the sites, play a ping pong match once or twice a day give their brains a little bit of exercise — or to simply get up from the desk.
To keep things interesting, there is a wager on every match. And, because gambling real currency is against company policy — and illegal (for the most part) — the wagers have been far more creative than “you owe me a coffee.”
The video above is an example of such a wager: Stacy, the Digital Content Producer, lost a match and was forced to sit on a still inside one of the elevators and be an attendant for 15 minutes.
