We spend such a large percentage of our waking hours at the office and it’s important we’re productive during those hours, but why shouldn’t our offices inspire a little fun! If we’re happy at work we will tend to be more engaged and engaged workers tend to be more productive workers. As a matter of fact sitting at a desk all day can be a strain to the mind, and it’s important to get up and be active every once in a while. Stand up, take a break, and spend time with the people you spend your day with. With that in mind, there are so many things to do during a break other than just standing around. So how can you make your office more fun? What can you do to make your company a more enjoyable and fun place?
Some companies go over the top with the actual design of their office spaces….
But you don’t need to spend millions on the coolest looking offices to create a fun environment. Although slides and bowling alleys would be a great addition to any office, it can be much simpler than that. Bring a couple of classic games into your office and host mini-tournaments across your teams. All you have to do is put some teams together, set up a bracket, and let the fun begin.
Customizing lawn games such as:
- Ladder Golf
- Shuffle Board
- 4 In A Row
- Ring Toss
- Paddle Game
can spruce up any work environment.
If tournaments aren’t enough, prizes and simple trophies are an easy way to boost the competition of the players involved. A nice customized prize at the end of a game can turn any lawn sport, into an intense battle for the winning title. MVP or champion trophies could be a great addition to any desk or office. Because what’s fun and games without a little competition?
Also, think about team and/or company outings. They can be as simple as a company BBQ, some kind of adventure trip such as whitewater rafting, tickets to a sporting event, or even some kind of community service day. Be sure to commemorate events like these with an item that everyone can take home. This will ensure that the positive experience people have stays with them after the event. A souvenir can make company bonding experiences a lasting memory that won’t be forgotten.
