What is fun and why is it important in your workplace? Fun is defined as enjoyment, amusement, or light-hearted pleasure. It has also been defined as a state of being or an attitude that can be chosen by anyone at any time. Simply having fun can be more powerful than most people realise. It can inspire you, motivate you and give you the courage to take actions you would never normally consider in your “pre-fun” state.
Sadly having fun is something that a lot of people in the Higher Management Level seem to have forgotten all about. How many people out there know a CEO, Director, General Manager or Business Owner who has dedicated their entire life to the success and promotion of their business and seem to have forgotten that life and enjoyment is happening all around them?
The act of having fun actually increases your levels of “feel good” neurotransmitters in your brain and when this occurs you actually feel better in general. As a Manager you will find that when your staff are having fun they will find it easier to be creative, more energetic and this will in turn make your company a better place to be, and be involved with.
So bearing all of that in mind, how can you make your workplace more fun? How can you increase productivity? Try our 3 crazy ideas and let us know how you go!
- Forget Casual Friday and try Monday Madness instead! Everyone gets dragged down by the Monday Blues so how about getting your staff to wear something just a little bit mad! A crazy Tie, Silly Earrings, maybe that 80’s jacket in the back of your wardrobe!
- Once a month, get the entire office to go out to a long lunch. Fast Food Friday will do wonders to bring your team together and have everyone talking about where you should go!
- Initiate Amusing Contests! Have a silly challenge of the week for the ugliest tie, the most embarrassing childhood photo. Get your team laughing at themselves and most importantly laughing with each other.
It’s important to remember that the happier your employees are, the happier your clients will be!
