Value of fun in workplace

Thursday, May 23, 2013   By Mike Reddy


The equation is simple:

happy employees + energetic atmosphere = productive and motivated team members.

Companies like Google made waves when their corporate culture shocked other giants of the industry…fun at work?

Sounds like an oxymoron. But Google's employee satisfaction and retention rates are high and they were ranked the number 1 company to work for in 2012, so they must be doing something right!

CEO's are picking up on the message and making small workplace changes to bring a little old-fashioned fun to the table.
