Want to increase productivity, staff engagement and longevity? Well this is the secret no one is telling you about...
Here at Fabrisign UK we’re a huge advocate for fun at the workplace, not only does it help with productivity, it also increases job satisfaction and in turn decreases staff turnover. The Levity Effect describes how staff who enjoy work are more likely to “work harder, stay longer, and maintain their composure in a crisis and take better care of the organization” (1). We’ll show you how you can utilise fabric display stands to have more fun at work and reap the benefits of that.
Staff engagement is a large factor when determining staff longevity, fun ways to engage staff can keep them more interested in the business projects and direction. An IPad fabric display stand in the reception area could offer staff a place to read info about changes in the business, give them a space to share their thoughts about projects or even a chance to play a fun game before starting their day. Showing your staff that you value them by offering them a place to share their thoughts and ideas will keep them more engaged in the business, and in turn they will continue to offer solutions and ideas to the business.
Offering your staff regular breaks and a fun area for them to escape to and relax will result in them working harder during their hours. Our straight fabric display stands can act as a target board or goalposts that your staff can playfully throw or kick objects into during their breaks. This area of release and fun shows your staff that you’re a good employer willing to reward your staff’s good work and in turn they will work harder for fun rewards.
Productivity often equals more revenue, but how do you get the most out of your staff? Countries such as Sweden have been experimenting with a 6 hour work day, offering a shorter period of work, to maximise on attention span. You don’t have to change your working hours but using something like a fabric meeting pod as an area to take a breather and 5 minutes out can help staff return to their work fresh. And when staff are refreshed, they are able to work at a better pace and produce higher quality work.
As you can see, fun in the workplace has a very positive impact on staff engagement, and staff longevity which is an important factor in the success of the company. Utilising these methods will help to ensure that your staff are giving their best and are investing their long term future with your business.
