What is your corporate culture like? Or more importantly how does your CC affect employees and ultimately the bottom line?
Here at UCF we work hard on work, we also work hard at having fun. Most everyone has heard, probably even said and maybe even live by “work hard play hard” which is ok but here at UCF we “play hard while working hard”.
Instilling an attitude of having fun while you’re at the “salt mine” isn’t easy. We have two or three ping pong games a day sometimes we’ll go down to the gym and shoot some hoops. But other times nothing happens but work. Having balance plays into culture.
Giving your employees and yourselves the freedom to have fun at work may be work. This “work” shouldn’t be overlooked instead thoughtful considered. Having good CC makes managing and mentoring a lot easier.
I worked on this yesterday (2/9/11) by wearing a skeleton costume all day. It lightened the mood, everyone laughed and poked fun and work still commenced.
What is your skeleton costume.
