Hercules Projects

Work hard. Play hard.

More employee engagement through the power of gamification and sportainment formats

We help you build your tribe

Remove generation gaps and cultural barriers.

Today's workplace is quite different from that of past generations. It's dynamic, ever-changing and less hierarchical. Four generations are currently working together on the workfloor, each with different goals, modes of communication and expectations. Millennials already comprise the largest generation at about 40% today. 

  In a VUCA world, organisations can no longer guarantee job stability, change is accelerating and the diverse workforce seeks different awards. Is it any wonder that so many employees feel disengaged at work? Companies with engaged employees have twice the revenu and four times the profit compared to other companies.

Activate. Inspire. Engage.

According to the latest studies on Millennials, an inclusive and diverse work environment emerges as the main reason for choosing an employer.

Improving employee engagement is what we do. We can help you transform your teams from silo culture to footprint culture? 

Whether you want to organize your next team building event, sports day, kick-off, after-work or if you are looking for a memorable brand activation or complete engagement program: we bring all participants in an unparalleled atmosphere of togetherness, regardless of their background.

It is precisely those unforgettable adventures and cherished moments, supported by our online engagement platform that bring your audience to a new level and encourage employees to achieve more.

Want to take it one step further and not just organise one event, but make it part of a bigger goal and overall employee engagement program? Call us!

Our references


“The Pomax Team Day was an absolute success. Together with all colleagues, and with the help of the nice weather, we had an immense amount of fun. Ties were forged with colleagues whom we previously knew only by name and the photos afterwards were eagerly shared. We really look back on this experience with great pleasure. ”

Kim Soete - Pomax


  “We want to bring all the employees of one department together as they all work at customer premises and don’t really know each other. They are all high performers. If everyone gets to know 10 other people during the day, it’s a massive success for us.”

Sven - Deloitte


  “Most of our employees are usually working at their desk and aren’t facing the customers. The idea of the concept was to give them a good feeling of how a customer feels. Using games as an awareness tool turned out to be the perfect strategy. People were having a lot of fun, but also understood the educational aspect of it. The reaction after this day is hopefully leading to thoughts like: “maybe I can change something in my own process, simplify a document, or adapt my behaviour to make the customer’s life easier."

Anja Helbig - Daman

Thank you to all our loyal Herculeans

People make the difference

Every organisation wants its people to become true ambassadors. You want them to cooperate and go the extra mile for you. However, it is exceptionally difficult to unite people through common values. You are confronted with different generations and cultures with diverging expectations. The need to make your message resonate with them screams for a thorough approach based on years of experience. Organizing all sorts of events can help. However, it is not easy to come up with something that makes everyone happy and fits your strategy and DNA. Not to mention the actual organization or its cost …

A Herculean recipe for success 

Communication

Thoughtful, consistent communication is of crucial importance. Our online platform can be adapted to reflect your look and feel and enables people to look forward to the your events, activations and workshops with the right expectations. Cooperate with your trusted strategy or communication agency? Gladly!

Emotion

Without experience, there is no resonance, no memories, no return. Thanks to our know-how we master the subtle art of adding engagement for different generations and cultures to an event or to inspire and guide them in change programs.

Organisation

"Things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance." A failing organisational team is the last thing you need at that moment. For your peace of mind it is best to work with a team with over 20 years of experience in organizing festivals for businesses across the globe. We all come from the business world and understand your needs.

Return on Investment

Before starting, stipulate your goals: do you want to inspire, engage, party, connect, inform, show off your brand, thank someone? We do not lack for creativity. We will gladly listen and help you come up with new concepts based on proven formats. Return on investment guaranteed. With each and every project we evaluate ourselves to ensure we are as good as we can be.

Family Fun Day

Make your Family Day more active and more engaging.

Engaging all generations.

Family Days are the perfect way to bring employees together, get to know their families and thank everybody. The challenge is to organize a company event that appeals to everyone. Young families, seniors and new employees: each have their own preference. How do you please everyone? Very often, organisers find their Family Days badly attended, which is a waste of money. The Herculean Family days are an adequate answer to the challenges presented. How? By providing active Family Days that appeal to both the old and the young. We organize your very own Family Festival, with a wide variety of activities that engage everyone. Whether your audience is looking for action, relaxation, coziness or inspiration. Entertainment, fun and good food are, of course, included. We create goodwill and provide emotional connections, completely in line with your corporate culture. On top of this, the Hercules platform does all the administrative work for you, so you can look forward to your event without problems.  

What we offer.

For all ages - Action - Well-being - Icebreakers - Entertainment 

Our mission is connecting people. We also want to inspire your employees and their family to adopt a healthier, more active, more balanced lifestyle.  

We offer them an unforgettable experience, filled with a wide variety of activities, workshops, performances and meetings with inspiring personalities.  

How about:  

- A sports theme park filled with activities you’ve always wanted to try ?

  - Choose from our list of +150 activities. Together we will create an unforgettable programme for your company’s needs.  

BBQ

Our differentiators.

A concept for everyone: We will keep fine-tuning our programs until even the most stubborn non-believer succumbs.

Entertainment is our cup of tea. We provide artists, performances, coaches,… and lift your spirits from the very first moment.

We love children and that feeling is mutual. We offer lots of cool kids’ activities they can enjoy! #nevergrowingold

Exercising with colleagues and family members creates an unexpected bond. As Mandela said: "Sport has the power to unite people".

Keeping track of event administration, like special meal requests, cancellations,...: sounds like a nightmare? No need: The platform takes care of your admin.

We make everyone feel as if they are part of one big family. From years of experiences we have made friendship our top priority.

We are one: your corporate culture.

Where would your employees be without the support of their families? Their involvement has a direct impact on their happiness and productivity. The world has changed a lot in the last decades. The need for authenticity is huge. People are looking for real experiences, preferably with their dearest ones. Hercules Projects add emotion, action and fun to your Family Day and provide unforgettable experiences. The result: More commitment of your employees, a strengthened corporate identity and an increased awareness of well-being. Is your organisation too small for a separate Family Day? You may want to consider participating in Hercules Trophy. The event includes teambuilding, activities for kids and spectators, networking and a great party all at once!

Company Trophy

A friendly competition for all athletic levels.

Unity in diversity.

Currently, 4 different generations are working together in businesses. Interesting, but challenging! It’s not easy to align such a diverse group and connect with everyone. With 20+ years of experience in leadership, business psychology, gamification and sports, we consider it our mission to help you activate, inspire and connect your employees. Our Company Tropy aka Sports Day provides an emotional connection and lasting experience for everybody, regardless of their background and physical fitness.

Mix, match & play.

The coolest staff event you can imagine. The concept: a “friendly” competition where teams face off against each other in the Herculean challenges. The challenges are a mix of activities where teamwork, humor and brains are just as important as endurance and strength. All ages and genders can participate. You can pick from our list of +150 activities. You select the location and formula: half a day, an entire day or 2 days, catering and entertainment. Your administrative work is heavily reduced thanks to the platform. Teams create their own identity online beforehand and challenge each other on your tailor-made company page. The effect lasts so much longer with the vibe building up weeks before the day and being being well prepared. In short: the ideal employer branding tool.

Key differentiators.

Everyone can participate, regardless of the athletic skills. The difficulty level is adapted to your needs.

Did someone say party? Celebrating together is an essential part of the Herculean DNA. 

International experience: +10,000 people have had a taste of the Herculean experience globally. 

Action, emotion and gamification: it’s the magical mix that never fails to fire up.

A little bit of competition never hurt anyone. Fairplay is of the essence. Everbody is a hero. 

Long-term effect, starting weeks before the event. In the people's minds for years. 

Come as a company. Leave as a team.

Your company culture is unique and should be cherished. The connection felt in a Herculean competition are priceless when it comes to strenghtening the team spirit. Is your organisation too small for a separate company Sports Day? You may want to consider participating in Hercules Trophy, the inter-company team challenge: teambuilding, family activities, networking, well-being and entertainment. An unforgettable experience.
