The Pursuit of Happiness (at Work)Posted by Avalon | PR Knowledge, The Workplace | No Comments
We all know that sometimes sitting at your desk day after day may get a little repetitive, therefore making work less fun- and who wants that?! Work should be a place where ideas come to life, where you feel relaxed and confident in your progress and ultimately a place that you actually want to wake up for in the morning.
The atmosphere at Avalon Communications is the perfect balance between work and play. We get things done, but have fun while doing so. Below are some fun ways to make the workplace a happy place.
Sure, this sounds more like work than play- but they really work! Grab your co-workers, order in some lunch and simply have a conversation! Talk about your clients, their products, what you are working on now, or any questions you might have. Sitting at the same table and engaging in open conversation is a great way to brainstorm, and maybe even solve some problems! It is always nice to have a fresh perspective on ideas, and a strategy session solves just that (Plus it involves food).
The Holidays are always a fun time at home, so why not make them fun at work? Celebrate co-workers birthdays, have a Christmas party! This year at Avalon, we are having a Secret Santa! Having fun things like this in the office make the day a little less stressful and also show that your company really cares about you as an employee.
Make the Office Aesthetically Appealing
No one wants to work in an office that could double as a prison cell. Not only will employees be happier at an office that looks good, but they will get more work done as well! Some décor may be out of your hands- but even a simple tree at Christmas time can set a happy mood in the office.
These are just a few of the ways we like to keep it fun at Avalon, but at the end of the day it is about productivity and getting our jobs done. Keep in mind that the saying goes, “Work Hard, Play Hard” and not the other way around.
Hope you all have a FUN day at work!
