“Happy employees are healthier and more productive – so don’t overlook the importance of having fun in the workplace” (Chignell, 2018). Adding a fun element to the workplace can lead to improved results for employees, leaders, and the wider organisation. Happiness can have a positive effect on the health of employees, reducing their absenteeism. Fun is also a great way to build team spirit and collaboration and increase team creativity and productivity. Employees who are in good spirits are less likely to be stressed and will be more productive and positive in their outlook.
