The start-up wave has hit this country. Hard. Gone are the days of suit-and-tie-clad corporates. Young and trendy start-ups have a new agenda – creating a fun vibe at work. Productivity improves when employees are having fun and employers are always looking for creative ways to motivate, energize and encourage their teams. Here are a five ways you could make work more fun.
1. Employee Appreciation
The age-old “Employee of the Month” concept, while still relevant, is, let’s face it, extremely boring. An innovative way to appreciate and motivate employees is by introducing a creative rewards and recognition program. A fun and economical way to do this is by presenting employees with personalized badges! Things like “Top Performer”, “Ace of Sales”, “Deadline Destroyer”, etc., printed on badges and presented to employees, adds a fun and quirky vibe at work.

2. Wall of Ideas
Young employees are bursting with creative ideas. Unfortunately, these ideas are often lost in the kerfuffle. A good way to rectify this is creating a wall of ideas.
Stick a tree shaped wall decal on one of your office walls where employees can stick their ideas using Sticky Notes or Post-Its.
Employee morale is boosted because their inputs are appreciated and who knows, you may stumble upon the next big idea!!

There is no better way to show your employee you care, than by personalizing things for them. Mugs, notebooks, pens, plaques, calendars, pen drives, the list goes on. Nothing says, “You are appreciated”, like something useful, with your name or face on it.
4. Funky Wall art
India is brimming with budding artists who can work their magic and transform your drab walls. If you’re going to have your employees look at something, make it spunky and worth their while. Instill the spirit of the company, while keeping it fun and stimulating.
