Richard Okot, the vice chairman of the Corporate games hinted on the essence of these games;

We are aiming at bringing together corporate people from various companies on a monthly basis to engage in various sporting activities and creating an environment where individuals from different companies (organizations) go to interact on a personal and team basis as well as networking in terms of businesses and at the end of the season, an annual awards dinner. This will also act as an external team building program for the member companies and will improve on the physical fitness of many employers who are tied up possibly for long hours behind their desks in the corporate world. Our aim is to bring together corporate companies from the various sectors such as Telecommunications, Agriculture, Insurance, Banking, Construction, Beverage, Audit and Accounting, Legislators, Clearing and Forwarding, Government Parastatals, Industries, to mention but a few.
