National Fun at Work Day

National Fun at Work Day

Most people wouldn’t expect “work” and “fun” to come together in any given situation. But, this doesn’t mean it has to be that way. People with bright spirits and a commitment to making their lives happy and full of joy can make any situation fun. Even work!

Work can actually be a fulfilling part of your life. Even if you are just spending time with your coworkers during the day so work doesn’t feel like a grind, it is a great day for having lots of fun. National Fun at Work Day celebrates the many hours spent at work and those who make it fun every day.

People have tried to keep work fun for as long as they can remember. This task has been accomplished in many ways throughout history, but the most popular are work songs.

Many different purposes have been served by work songs. Some songs were used to keep people entertained while they worked. Sea Shanties and others, such as Sea Shanties, have a purpose. They keep people on time while they work together to lift sails, haul cargo, and perform other tasks in rhythm.

While modern methods for having fun at work may have evolved over time, the goal remains the same. Employers want workers to be happy and the time to go by faster. Having high morale can increase productivity and speed up the pace of work.

Modern methods include company retreats, squirt guns battles and, for companies like Google or Microsoft, Nerf Gun Battles. These are all creative ways to make employees have fun at work. Even large companies know that employees are happier and more productive when they have a good morale.

It is not a coincidence that National Fun at Work Day falls at the end January. It can be difficult to make it through these dark weeks of winter after the holiday rush. A little fun can help.

According to the American Psychological Association, stress can cost US employers as much as $300 billion annually. Employers should acknowledge and observe this day for good reasons.
