Adding Fun to the Line Up

With economic headlines that read from bad to worse, or just downright confusing in contradictory predictions, it’s a tough act for business leaders to motivate employees.

But, we are noticing a recent trend with clients seeking ways to incorporate fun into their meeting agendas.  Move over bottom line and product forecasting — fun is taking its rightful place in the line-up.

Themed parties, dance-offs, and even rap are just a few of the ways our clients are looking to add some bounce to business meetings.

And, we are watching employees respond to the humour, and that’s gotta be good for business.

Take it from the man who built his business on being different:

“A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.” Sir Richard Branson
