19 Jul How to Make Work More Fun for Employees
A happier and enjoyable workplace is a motivational factor that increases the productivity of employees. To enhance the efficiency of your accounting or bookkeeping practice, it’s important to ensure your staff has a good time at work and looks forward to showing up every day.
There are many simple, easy and fun activities to promote positive reinforcement. From going away on trips to playing games, your team can organize whatever enjoyment they like best. Here’re our recommendations:
- Arrange to have a pool table or table tennis table at work so your staff can unwind during breaks at work. Such activities can help build great personal relationships amongst colleagues. If your team works remotely, they can enjoy an online break together playing Trivia, Charades, Draw the Picture or 2 Truths and a Lie (LOOK THEM UP!)
- To break the monotony at work, add a little adventure with outdoor trips like a hike or take your employees to a golf range.
- Dinner or lunches at a fun patio or new restaurant in town are a great and easy way to help the team connect in a different environment. If your team works remotely, plan to get them together in a city to do a fun activity like wine tasting.
- Decorate the workplace to make it a happy place. From seating arrangements to lighting, make it a space that’s welcoming, lit up and refreshing. If your team works remotely, send them a nice lamp or a planner to jazz up their work-from-home spot!
- Celebrate every achievement. Festivities can help reduce stress and burnout at work. Your employees will see you acknowledging their hard work and trust you more.
- Allow your employees to have a casual day at work so they can dress as they please and feel relaxed.
Creating an appealing workplace for your employees can help you retain the best employees and attract the best talent in the market. In addition, a less stressful environment can help you manage the emotions of your employees easily. This will save you time and resources to focus on more meaningful goals.
