Top 10 Ways to Make Office Life More Fun for your Team

Full View
1. Number one - Be spontaneous
1 of 10

If you’re the boss, you can draw on a whole range of ideas to make life a little more engaging for the team - but one of the best gifts you can give them is a little time. If you’ve all had a hard week, bring in a bucket of cold drinks and knock off an hour early of Friday - productivity will rise to meet the earlier deadline, and everyone will feel good about it, too. Or go to the pub for lunch every once in a while - just keep the gestures spontaneous or they lose their impact, as people come to expect - rather than appreciate - things as they become routine.

A happy team is a productive team, with employee engagement correlating to positive indicators like lower employee absence and a higher likelihood to recommend a friend to join the same business. However, with the everyday pressures of office life, it can be tough to lighten the mood. Don’t despair though - even with no budget to throw at office fun, you can make the daily grind more fun with some of these ideas.
