Work or Play

Here's the company we should all be working for:

Chess is a large part of the culture at Benecard, a Lawrenceville, N.J., company that processes and administers prescription drug and vision programs for health plans. Benecard's 50 employees can take the occasional introductory class over lunch, which includes a free set. Clients were once invited to a reception at which grandmaster Jude Acers took on all comers. Marshall even used to set up a chessboard in the Benecard booth at trade shows...

Company chess isn't mandatory by any means, but the game is encouraged around the office and the number of regular players is growing...
