1. Race your co-workers to the elevator.

And obviously prepare a victory dance for when you get to ride it alone. Duh.

2. Place a bet to see which one of your co-workers can get their inbox to zero first.

Productive and satisfying.

3. See who can pull off the fanciest, most creative parking job.

Use every part of the parking lot.

4. See what kinds of ridiculous stuff you can sneak into a PowerPoint presentation.

Everyone loves an Easter egg. ;)

5. Try to out-eat your co-workers during catered lunches.

It IS a competition. Do not be fooled. This is what will get you that promotion over that brown-noser, Steve.

6. Discreetly try to beat your co-worker's high score on that word game, outside of lunch hours.

Look at that triple word score, Tricia!

7. Start a desk chair race.

Yell, "Team building is important!" at everyone who gives you a dirty look.

8. See who can pull the most outrageous desk prank.

Anything with mortar is seriously high commitment, high reward.

9. Try to see who can get the most free snacks on your business trip.

Be polite, become best friends with the stewardess, and show Ron from Accounting just how far your charm can carry you.

10. Call shotgun when you're riding to lunch.

11. Vote on who has the best coffee mug in the office.

Mug king or queen gets bragging rights until someone gets a new mug and challenges them. So spring for two-day shipping and kick Susan off her high horse.

The office can be competitive, and there’s a million ways to keep upping your score. We are all athletes, and with the new 2017 Ford Escape, life is a sport.
