It’s a day to take a break from the norm. A day to take a break from:

  • Low employee morale
  • Decreasing employee engagement
  • Lacking creativity and innovation
  • Employee turnover issues
  • Decreasing customer base

Today is the day to rejuvenate, recharge and reignite your organization. While some organizations will use the day as an opportunity for fun and games, others will use it as an opportunity to do some fun work in the area of creativity and innovation; teamwork and communication. It’s all good. Any time you can take a break from the nonstop day to day chaos is a good thing. After all it has been proven that breaks are essential for alertness and satisfaction. And we all know that a satisfied employee is an engaged employee.

So here is my challenge for you…………….

After the fun and games today……………How about setting aside the 3rd Thursday of every month to take a 30 – 60 minute Recess with your team, group, department or company? Take it as an opportunity to share successes, build stronger relationships, get everyone involved in the new product development process. And if you need ideas on activities that are not only fun, but have been proven to impact the bottom line (which is what the boss wants to hear), come back here regularly. I’ll be providing you with an activity of the month to do just that.

So, Happy Recess At Work Day and block out the 3rd Thursday of each month in your calendar. Unless of course you’re not committed to employee engagement, morale, productivity and creating great customer experiences.
