When work is fun, results are better

When work is fun, results are better

The end result of anything can be outstanding if the process is enjoyed, challenge-seeking, or sparks the adrenaline engine. Performing tasks with a little push and fun can go a long way when seeking good results. And this isn’t just a study; it’s quite a well-known fact.

Although several studies have investigated and proven that work and fun combined can increase productivity and efficiency at a workplace, maintaining the right balance could be challenging to practice initially. For the organizations looking for a little kick start to revamp their work process and productivity, here are a few ways to help begin with.

Encourage friendships and bonding.

Encouraging new friendships at work won’t just clear the air between two employees but will also help extend their friendship beyond working hours or after-work drinks. According to author Tom Rath, having a best friend at work will make a person seven times more engaging and spruce productivity and focus.

Workplace friendships can also strengthen teams on a social, interactive, and intellectual basis. Ideas can be shared without having to worry about what the other person might have to say, or group discussions can be made less formal to communicate efficiently.

Celebrate small wins

One of the biggest influences on happiness at a workplace relies on the ‘progress principle.’ When you look at work as something meaningful and not some daily routine that you do just for the heck of it, you have yourself a small win there. Celebrating small wins doesn’t just mean acing a pitch or winning a client, but it also means bringing some meaning to your work that you want to direct your energy and focus into.

Also, it’s always a good gesture to celebrate your fellow employee’s win—be it small or big—perhaps by going out for a couple of drinks or visit a play arena. Well, just name a place and have a good time!

Peer to peer feedback

Now, this may seem a little too odd to have ‘fun’ with, but it sure can go a long way in building reliable relationships. Bosses and managers at almost every workplace know only the outline of an employee’s work, so they may not provide the need-of-the-hour feedback when the employee really needs it. So why not try peer-to-peer feedbacks?

Employees can help each other grow by giving and receiving feedback, be it positive or constructive. You can count on the results of it – a more loyal workforce, healthy relationships, and dynamic teamwork.

Hobbies at work

There’s more benefit in doing what pleases you for a half-hour than constantly juice out your brain in work. Hobbies are like therapy, and this kind of therapy can help recharge your batteries and share common interests among your peers.
