Over the last 15 years the concept of Fun at Work has evolved from being seen as “soft and fluffy” to having a significantly impactful approach for those working with business psychology.  One of the drivers for this change is the widening base of evidence highlighting the huge difference between those successful and motivated and others not so.   The subject is now attracting serious research, especially as up to 75% of employees claimed to be disengaged at work, and the UK lags most other industrialised countries in terms of productivity.

The current research spotlights the variety of tools and concepts which can have an impact on Fun at Work, including the current Health and Wellbeing agenda, and the presentation will include links and comparisons with related public and private sector initiatives and their impact on the working environment.

There will also be a discussion on how differently people respond to interventions and how cultural initiatives can be tailored to managing the “Fun” concept.
