Building a Healthier Agency

Building a Healthier Agency

LAPIZ has always embraced new ideas and collaborative, out of the box thinking. Over the spring, that collective nature culminated in a 12 week effort called the LAPIZ Fitness Challenge. It was designed to promote health and wellness, but also to bring the office together towards a common goal!

The office was separated into groups and each team tried to figure out what types of exercises fit best with their schedules. From running up and down the stairs during lunch to taking a 20 minute walk downtown, our office has gotten very creative in adopting a healthier lifestyle.

In the end, the office camaraderie has helped keep each other motivated and facilitated deeper office relationships. We can truly say the office has never looked better!

At LAPIZ we love to give back to the community. Especially when we can help make an impact on our future leaders and great minds! That’s why in April we joined with our Leo Burnett and Arc teammates to take over a local Chicago K-12 school. John Walsh elementary has predominantly Hispanic students so we felt it was a perfect fit. Inspiring and empowering our fellow Latinos to become future entrepreneurs was an extremely gratifying experience. Looking forward to next year!

Unleashing the Latino Entrepreneurial Spirit

Unleashing the Latino Entrepreneurial Spirit

In April, LAPIZ employees helped out in our local Chicago community through Junior Achievement's "JA in a day". The experience was so inspiring, we wrote an article that we feel encompasses the realities of the growing Latino entrepreneurial community and its effects on the Newstream - which in turn is effecting current as well as our future mainstream culture. Enjoy!

We Give Back

We Give Back

We partner with several non-profit organizations throughout the city, so whether our employees help once a month to read to a child, donate from their paycheck, create a pro bono campaign or sit on the Board of Directors, there is always an outlet to give back.

Off The Street Club provides a safe haven for children living in a place that has seen the largest relative increase in violence and imprisonment rates in the U.S. Supported by Leo Burnett and the Chicago Ad Community for over 110 years, there are activities, programs and initiatives that build self-esteem and provide these children with a positive path to follow as they grow. And what started as one employee's passion became what is now known as "Paddle Royale" - an annual table tennis tournament open to all creative agencies in Chicago with proceeds benefiting Off The Street Club.
