“All Work and No Play”
Want to improve your company’s morale? Are your employee’s starting to feel the mid-winter blahs? The importance of having fun and enjoying your work has been cited many times over. Yet, too often, employers ignore the findings that having fun at work develops a positive staff culture, improves teamwork, and boosts motivation.
Are you making Employee Morale an organizational objective? Are you constructing ways to improve employee relations? These items can be two of the largest ways for HR to improve employee retention; but they are often times pushed to the back burner, with the Hot Issues taking precedence for managers and HR. This becomes even more blatant in small business, as managers are often times stretched thin and trying to deal with the administrative functions of HR, rather the organizational needs of HR.
Why not take today, International Fun at Work Day, and shake things up a bit? Set aside sometime to connect, whether it is thru a lunch, an outing, or some simple in office games. Get your team energized, and motivated, and see how quickly some “blowing off steam” time translates into “productive” time.
