The Evidence

WORK TODAY ISN’T WORKING

It’s tough out there. You may already know this, but we will illustrate it with statistics and reports. People are sad and frustrated in the workplace. Employee satisfaction ratings are tanking and people are feeling unhappy and unfulfilled. The good news is that study after study proves that fun (the Fun Is Good philosophy) has a positive physical and mental impact on work productivity. When people have fun and are engaged in what they do, they help create a healthier environment for themselves, their co-workers and their customers.

18% OF EMPLOYEES ADMIT TO TAKING OUT THEIR UNHAPPINESS ON FELLOW EMPLOYEES*

70% OF EMPLOYEES ARE DISENGAGED

If 70% of surveyed employees are disengaged and 18% admit to taking out their unhappiness at work and undermining their fellow employees, then most companies need an action plan to address this inevitable phenomenon happening in their organization. A Gallup Survey unveiled that companies with a highly engaged workforce (our most critical business asset) have a 22% higher profitability. Happy employees have an unmistakable positive influence/impact on customer satisfaction which is the primary business objective in all profitable organizations.

THERE’S HOPE

When employees are committed, have fun and truly enjoy themselves, accredited studies validate that people perform to their optimal potential.  According to a 2012 Gallup study, companies with engaged employees realized:

  • 21% higher productivity
  • 22% higher profitability
  • 48% fewer safety incidents
  • 10% higher customer satisfaction metrics
  • 37% lower employee absenteeism
