Creating A Fun And Enjoyable Workplace
- Come out of the myth that professionalism means being serious all the time. Prepare yourself to be light and still be competent and productive.
- Set up your desk in a way that reflects excitement. Place some fun and interesting work appropriate items around your desk to spark conversation. You can also paste some fun anecdotes about life on the wall.
- Update yourself on fun and exciting things about life, such as news, technology and more. Share this with your colleagues.
- It is important to be cordial with your team members, as it helps in having a harmonious team equation. Try to be in the good books of the team leader or manager, as they can mentor you and help you establish yourself.
- Organize a committee to ensure that fun activities and events are organized regularly, such that they are appropriate for your company. Ensure that the committee is rotated frequently, to generate new and fresh ideas and sustain the ongoing commitment to fun on the job.
- You can set up events such as walking, rollerblading or biking groups during lunch hours. Get all your colleagues and employees involved in it.
- Organize brain storming sessions. Whether they relate to work or not, they sure are fun, interactive and challenge you to think and use your imagination.
- Hold fun customer events. Enable your employees to build a fun and strong relationship with customers by giving them tools such as stickers, candy for children, humorous buttons with the company logo, and so on.
- Another significant point is the office politics, which you cannot escape, as it is found everywhere. However, make sure that you do not engage in gossips, spread rumors or use tea breaks to discuss outside interests. Try to gather more of friends and allies, thus helping you make your workplace fun.
- Do not take your work back home at the end of the day, as it can affect your family and leisure activities. This, in turn, will make you resent your workplace. Pen down a “to do” list and put it up on the notice board. This will help you to free your mind from the things to do on the next day.
- Being a working professional, it is essential for you to be well groomed, to feel good and ooze confidence. If you look and feel good, you will love working as well.
