Homo Ludens or “The player” turns the working space into a “playground” where he deploys his personal skills.
Through the game/work, he acquires knowledge, experiments, meets up, interacts and becomes acquainted with other people, but first of all with himself.
By “playing”, as in creating, the Polyeco people face their work as a means of self-improvement and personal excellence. We envision a space where working becomes a process of self-understanding, of common effort and of appropriation of the results of our efforts.
Having said that, at Polyeco we become Homini Ludensi and always give our best: for our customers, partners, suppliers but firstly and for mostly for our own sake.
