"You can’t accomplish anything unless you have some fun." — Charles Knight, Emerson Electric
Don't let the pressures of business bring down your employees. If your employees aren't having fun, they're probably not performing at their highest level. It's time to inject fun back into your company's culture.
Getting energized about work usually results from a couple things. Primarily if a work culture is fun to be in, it’s a place you look forward to going because the people (and leadership) are authentic, caring and fun. And teams that are energized with what they are doing get excited by the opportunities that a day may bring.
It is time managers learned how to create an atmosphere that is challenging, creative and fun for employees as well as for themselves. A good manager knows how to have a good balance between being professional at work and having fun in the process.
Remember that employees create fun in the workplace, not managers. It’s a manager’s job to orchestrate fun activities (and not get in the way of them).
