A workplace can become incredibly monotonous incredibly quickly. Sitting behind a desk for eight or nine hours during the day, five days a week can wear a person down. It’s almost as if full-time employees have become accustomed to this unbearable repetitive cycle. In time, however, this begins to wear down on the employee’s morale. A great way to break out from the monotony is by implementing daily recreation time wherein employees can play sports or go for a short walk for 10-15 minutes, every day. There’s always an afternoon slump that manifests when we start to digest our food, right when the length of the day starts to wear on our mind. This is the perfect time to break the cycle and stand up from the desk, at least briefly.
Try It Out!
Not only is recreational time a great way to clear the mind when exhaustion begins to creep in, but it’s also something your employees will be able to look forward to during the day! Of course, we all enter certain grooves or routines when working so it’s completely normal for a handful of employees to choose to stay working, instead of participating in rec time. If this occurs, don’t fret! Rec time may not be for everyone but having the option available is great and can help your employees work better than if the option wasn’t available in the first place!
Proud to Be a Cool Workplace
Recreational time doesn’t have to be during office hours. Lunchtime is a great time to plan activities with the entire workforce. Something as simple as playing video games can boost morale among employees, even creating friendships and comraderies! Then, when your employees talk about what they get to do at work to their friends, their friends will ask about their workplace. Usually, workplaces are strict and monotonous but by giving your employees a little bit of freedom, you can reap the rewards!
