At Liquidline we understand that fun in the workplace leads to increased employee productivity. Inspired by ‘National Fun at Work Day’ we have a ‘Fun at Work Day’ every quarter. Dave Hemseth and Leslie Yerkes, co-authors of 301 Ways to Have Fun at Work say, “Organizations that integrate fun into work have lower levels of absenteeism, greater job satisfaction, increased productivity, and less downtime.” – NationalDayCalendar.com
This quarter’s fun day is on Friday 07 October and the theme is sports. Everyone is invited to come in wearing a sports top or pay a forfeit. Activities will include darts, golf and an egg and spoon race. It is ‘National Frappe Day’, so we will be making frappes to celebrate.
We tie in our fun days with whatever the national day is. Previous fun days have included ‘National Blueberry Day’ – where everyone had to wear something blue or purple and ‘National No Sock Day’ – where the men had to come in without socks on and the ladies had to come in with socks over their tights.
Fun at Work Days are a great way to boost morale and increase motivation. What do you do to increase employee productivity in your workplace?
