Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.
MBA Essential Tip:
Is "having fun at work" just another management trend du jour? Perhaps, but I do believe that our greatest performance comes when we: enjoy what we do for a living, enjoy the people we work with, and feel a sense of shared commitment. If having good, clean fun at work can enhance those 3 variables and ultimately be beneficial for an organization - why not have some fun?
Think about integrating fun into your company culture by scheduling it each year in advance. Perhaps once a month or once a quarter you have an off-site event for your entire company or department. Maybe it's bowling, paint balling, roller skating, or team sports like softball, kickball, or soccer. It's great to have fun as a reward - but also think about workplace fun as a necessity to keep morale up and teamwork working!
"A smile is the shortest distance between people." -Victor Borge (1909-2000)
