We all just want to have fun… but is the workplace really the right setting? In this unique episode of Transform Your Workplace, Brandon Laws gets the lowdown on the benefits of a playful workplace. His guest, Paul Lopushinsky, is a workplace play advocate and the founder of Playficient, a consulting company dedicated to helping companies invest in their employees. Even though it may have a bad wrap, Paul insists that when workplace play is implemented correctly, it can have a significant impact on productivity, morale, and the overall employee experience.

4 Takeaways:

  • A bottom-up approach is ideal when it comes to creating a playful workplace environment.
  • Play in the workplace leads to a boost in employee morale, productivity, and retention.
  • Companies should be wary of implementing “forced fun” or “mandated play.”
  • A buddy system can be an effective tool in facilitating playfulness at work.
