Employee Engagement Part 1: Having Fun Yet?

June 17, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: Fun!

Employee engagement is at its highest level since Gallup started tracking this metric in 2000.  That’s the good news.

The truth? Less than one-third (31.4%) of US workers said they were engaged in their jobs in 2014.

Success in this global and highly competitive economy may be less reliant on strategic investments in technology, acquisitions, and products, and more reliant on how you treat your employees.

Does it help to create an atmosphere of fun for your employees – on-site and virtually?

Well, that depends.

The experts speak.

Tom Koulopoulos, Delphi Group: “Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn’t know the first thing about either.” (Marshall McLuhan)

Sherryanne Meyer, ASUG: “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” (Professor Albus Dumbledore, in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, 2004)

Frank Sofia, SAP: “People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.” (Dale Carnegie)
