THE BENEFITS OF FUN
The mention of the word fun is something that can send a chill down the spine of those powers-that-be who are seemingly more focused on productivity, but nothing is more productive than a happy team! And you need to have fun to be happy. Fun shouldn’t just be a reward, it needs to be a priority.
Great Race started with one very clear goal in mind. To provide an escape from the monotonousness of the daily grind by connecting teams through unforgettable experiences.
Here are some of our favourite benefits to having fun as a team:
A fun team activity will allow your employees to show a different side of themselves. It humanises the workplace. The ability to showcase your social side will enhance self-esteem and build trust among your colleagues.
Fun is free and it’s really really good for you! Smiling and laughing is proven to build your immune system. Fun helps you to de-stress. This gives you greater energy and motivation and helps you find contentment and gratitude.
Fun is really good for business! Allowing fin in the workplace makes (and keeps) employees happy. A good regular dose of having a good time together will provide relief to work related stress and thus allow employees to enjoy themselves. Happiness breeds productivity!
Creating a fun culture will help you keep your current staff, and their stories will help you find new staff. Word travels fast when it comes to fun!
Getting your workmates out of the office to have fun is not a waste of time, it is a vital part of building your company or team. Its aides in communication and creates a sense of being valued.
