Fun At Work Day is a holiday that is celebrated on January 28th each and every year. It’s also a holiday that shouldn’t be mixed up with International Fun At Work Day – a holiday that falls on April 1st. This is a holiday in which workers blow off a little bit of steam at work. An activity that is usually frowned upon by management.
History of Fun At Work Day
No one really knows who created this holiday, but in most instances, it’s a holiday that’s not only embraced by the workers but management as well. That’s because most people know that allowing workers to have a little fun at work every once in awhile increases productivity, leads to higher employee retention and makes a more positive work environment. This leads to more productive, creative and loyal workers.
