Creating a Fun Workplace

Lets face it. Everyone is not the happiest employee, and even those who love their jobs find lulls in the workday at the office. Good thing CEO Centers has some tips and information for creating a fun workplace!

Impact of a Fun Workplace

Recent research shows that a fun workplace can significantly improve productivity and performance. A fun workplace leads to happy employees, which in turn lead to happy customers and improved business! While a fun workplace must be considered secondary to the hard work that must be done, it cannot be completely overlooked or a business can suffer.

Developing a fun workplace will help you:

  • Develop a positive staff culture
  • Boost morale and motivation
  • Build relationships – employee/employee, management/employee and customer/employee
  • Improve teamwork
  • Enhance employee satisfaction and loyalty
  • Help attract and retain the best people (minimizing recruitment and training costs)
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Enhance creativity and problem solving
  • Resolve conflicts and difficult issues
  • Increase productivity and performance

Fun Workplace Environment

A fun workplace environment can help lead to the aforementioned positive impacts of having fun at work. To begin, have employees personalize their workspaces. This can be done with personal photos, plants, aroma enhancers, small toys and the occasional mini basketball hoop above the garbage can. Wall decorations around the office and employee areas are also a good idea to provide them with brief mental escapes or chuckles that go a long way in a high stress environment. Make sure to make your break rooms as staff friendly as possible by including activities such as card and board games, and amenities like coffee makers, a fridge and the occasional special appliances.

Daily Dose of Fun

A fun workplace can be created through decor, but also contributed to through daily interactive tidbits that provide some sort of mental or comic relief for employees. Some ideas for your office’s daily dose of fun include:

  • Inspirational and fun quotes
  • Fun facts
  • Jokes and one liners
  • Brain teasers
  • Lateral thinking puzzles
  • Funny pictures
  • Optical illusions
  • Hand held puzzles
  • Props and gadgets
  • Snacks and candy
