Fun

Where there is fun, there is creativity and growth. In the seriousness and high pressured reality of corporate life it is easy to forget this and get caught in a whirlpool. We foster a fun work environment and aim for balance.

 

 

 

 

Ways for making work more Fun.

 Create "happiness-boosting traditions" with your co-workers.

 This can be anything, really.

 Take a few minutes every day to get up and walk around.

  • Even when you're crazed, taking a few minutes to get up and out of your chair clears your mind and makes you more ready for the next task. And, it's been proven to boost creativity.

Make your workspace a place you enjoy being.

  • Decorate your office or cube. Why not stick a picture from a recent vacation on your cube's walls or put a memento on your desk?

  • Another suggestion: keep any cards, thank-you notes, and emails from co-workers or clients that made you smile, and pin them to a cork board or wall of your cube.

Laugh.

  • Work doesn't have to be all business, all the time.

Of course you need to maintain your professionalism — but that doesn't mean you can't crack a smile (or a joke). When you smile and laugh, others around you will do the same (it's contagious!) and your office will be an all-around happier place to be.

Compliment someone every day.

  • When a co-worker tells you they liked the idea you pitched in the morning meeting, or the new painting you put up in your office, it makes you feel good. So, you should do the same to others. You'll actually feel just as good giving the compliment as you do receiving it.

Check in with your colleagues and your network. 

  • Walking over to a co-worker’s desk to "check in" or sending out emails to friends just to say "hi" and ask how they're doing can brighten up your day significantly.

Create or join an office team or club.

  • If your company has a softball team or a baking club, join. It's not only a great way to bond with your co-workers, but it'll give you something to look forward to, and something to talk about with your peers at work. If your company doesn't have any teams or clubs, look into creating one.

"Work is not always going to be too fun, But if you're conscientious and keep responsibilities and deadlines top of mind, any fun you can infuse into your day is only going to make you more productive and engaged by what you're doing."
