Have you ever had fun at work while working?
Work should be fun. Why? Because it's better. More productive. More effective. More creative. And it feels like success while being more successful.
Funshop applies methods validated by peer-reviewed research to make the work itself fun. And we measure success by the most stringent metric: how much fun is your work, and is that fun spread around evenly?
The Fun Challenge
Our relationships begin by offering a challenge based on our fun metric: we measure the fun in your organization, and demonstrate that fun correlates with your own performance metrics. We can pick your best team based on how much fun they’re having, and how evenly it’s spread. Our goal is to make you believers in the value of our kind of fun work before we deliver anything you pay for.
Fun work?? Are you serious?
Really serious. But we don't mean casual Fridays, foosball tables, brightly painted and cleverly decorated workspaces, or teambuilding exercises on the climbing wall. Fun work is work, not playtime at work. Quarterly "fun" activities may have temporary effects on morale, but fun work is every day, and has direct effects on your bottom line.
Is Fun the new Killer App?
Killer app? No. Fun work is the cherry on top of a lot of scoops of hard work, good management, and well-functioning systems. A fun workplace is built on a solid foundation. Fun can't be applied like a coat of paint, or readily scaled, or implemented on smart devices. Just as fun work is your best work, a fun workplace is your workplace at its best. And that takes time, and concerted effort, and support. It can't be bought, programmed, or mandated.
