Things You Can offer Employees That are Better than a Raise


Fun Work Environment and Great People


The president of a prominent airline company imparts this insightful advice: “Fun is a state of mind. Leaders can create this state of mind—but to do so, they must care about people, show trust and appreciation, be humble enough to join in and believe it is a good use of time! Joy is the lasting by-product of having fun and being with folks that give you energy. Leaders can bring joy to people’s lives, even when things are tough. Creating a sense of being a part of something very special is the key.”

Research affirms that a workplace infused with fun fosters enthusiasm, resulting in heightened productivity, improved customer service, a positive outlook towards the company, and increased likelihood of retaining talented employees. Often, all that’s needed to infuse fun is finding ways to connect with fantastic colleagues, and it doesn’t have to be elaborate or costly.

Have a great week!
