When's the last time you had fun at work? If you can't remember, you're missing out on more than just a few laughs. Go behind the scenes with the Saint Paul Saints, a minor league baseball team that lives its motto:Fun Is Good.
Three quarters of HR professionals polled agree that companies that promote fun at work are more effective than those that don't. Yet only 2 percent rate their organization as "excellent" with regard to its fun work environment.
This highly motivational program takes you behind the scenes at Midway Field in Minnesota, where fun is encouraged daily. Visit a workplace where a costumed pig tosses out the balls, "ushertainers" serenade you in the stands and games are always sold out. See firsthand just how much fun, when combined with commitment, relates to organizational success and personal satisfaction.
Sure, a day at the ballpark might sound like a good time. But when it's your job, it can mean a fifteen-hour day of hard work, whether you're cleaning the bleachers, keeping the books or taking care of customers. How do they do it?
For the people who work here, fun is an attitude. An experience. It's why everyone from head groundskeeper to the president and co-owner is passionate about coming to work. Having fun on the job makes these employees more creative, more productive, and ultimately more satisfied. They don't take themselves too seriously. They treat each other with respect. And they make every day an event.
Key concepts in the video can bring this mindset to any workplace:
- Discover Your Passion
- Bring a Positive Attitude
- Show People You Care
Discussion questions cover leadership and management, teamwork, how to handle change, values, and the challenges of customer service. There are also dozens of innovative ideas for integrating the Fun is Good attitude into any organization – any day and every day.
