Did you know January 27th is National Fun at Work Day? If not, now you do! Have fun at your for-profit, nonprofit, or institution, and on LinkedIn!

You can also have fun on Zoom on National Fun at Work Day if you work remotely.

Check out the upcoming virtual events at the bottom of this article and join in on the learning and networking fun! There are events of interest for nonprofits, self-employed, career transition, and career management.

I’m so glad that my good friend and SEO specialist extraordinaire, Joe Hummel, wrote an article reminding me that Friday, January 27th is Fun at Work Day.

In his article, he recaps reasons why it matters to have fun at work::

  • Increased employee retention
  • Improved employee productivity
  • Sparks collaboration and creativity
  • Decreased employee absenteeism
  • Improves company morale
  • Develops bonds
  • Accelerates learning
  • Improves comprehension
  • Builds engagement in shared experiences
  • Builds teams to reduce the feeling of isolation that may result in mental health issues

Since about a third of our lives are spent at work, adding fun appeals to our social needs as humans.

Since not everyone is back to work in person, here are some ideas for online audience engagement:

So get out and play and have fun and celebrate on National Fun at Work Day and beyond! Share your picture(s) and story in a post on LinkedIn and tag your company!
