I remember working for a Division 1 University and a person that I worked with was frustrated with the younger generation at the time and he said, “They need to get over it! You don’t go to fun…You go to work!” Sadly when it comes to work and fun that attitude still seems to prevail. There is mistaken belief that work and fun are like oil and water and the two don’t mix. However as Dr. Bob Nelson points out on this episode of A New Direction if you want more productive employees, loyalty, and a place where people want to come to work, then fun better be part of your package. In fact, research tells us that the largest employable group, the millennials are looking for a work environment that is fun. If it isn’t. as they say, “we don’t have time for that mess” and they get out.
Dr. Bob Nelson along with Mario Tamayo have co-authored this outstanding book entitled, “Work Made Fun Gets Done! Easy Way To Boost Energy, Morale, and Results” The book is literally filled with more than 100 examples of how you can add fun to your work. The fact of the matter is it starts with you as the employee finding ways to make work more fun. Then it goes into the leader, the team, and the organization. You area going to need to put everything you thought about work and fun in the back of your mind, because the research that Dr. Bob has done is sound and will blow you away. Work Made Fun Gets Done! isn’t just a clever title it is a fact. If your employees are not having fun at work you more than likely will struggle with profitability and turn over. Get ready because your work/fun session is about to begin.
