The CEA aims at improving camaraderie among co-workers
A software engineer from Microsoft, Daniel Jost, came up with a new and unconventional way to take on his peers at Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple. He created an esport league.
Jost named the organisation, the Corporate Esports Association (CEA) and it features tournaments in games like “Rocket League”, “League of Legends” and “Among Us”. All the matches are streamed on Twitch and YouTube and the players donate their winnings to charity.
Following the Covid-19 pandemic, interest in esport games and company team matches have boomed. For Jost, he hopes that the CEA will help improve workplace camaraderie and collaboration between co-workers.
