The culture of the workplace is an integral factor in job satisfaction and is a major factor in attracting and retaining talent. Culture affects how work gets done, how colleagues interact across all levels and, ultimately, how engaged employees are with the company.
HR departments are under increasing pressure to foster their company's culture. While HR may not always have the power to change the culture outright, it does have the ability to influence leadership to steer the culture in the right direction and nurture an environment where employees enjoy coming to work, performing their jobs and feel appreciated.
As W. Edwards Deming, the father of the total quality movement stated, "There must be joy of spirit in the work place.'" Numerous companies such as: Ben and Jerry's: Southwest Airlines; and Google adhere to the philosophy that the creation of a fun work environment maybe the single most important trait of a highly effective and successful organization.
During this staff development presentation, HR professionals will be organized into teams and develop a list activities and/or events designed to increase the joy, laughter and fun in the workplace.
At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the importance of developing a culture that stresses fun and joy in the work place
2. Describe the activities that companies have implemented to increase foster joy, laughter and fun at work.
3. Articulate a list of specific activities and/or events designed to foster a culture of having fun at work that can be implemented in their respective companies.
