Bob Nelson, author of the multimillion-copy best seller 1001 Ways to Reward Employees, and human performance expert Mario Tamayo offer hundreds of practical, creative tips for helping employees - and their managers - make work more fun.

According to the employees that work for firms listed in Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America”, the most defining characteristic of these organizations is they are all “fun” places to work.

Fun is the secret sauce every business needs to better engage and motivate its employees today. Work Made Fun Gets Done! gives listeners simple, practical ideas for instantly bringing fun into their work and workplace. Based on examples from scores of companies like Zoom, Pinterest, Bank of America, Zappos, Honda, Microsoft, and many more, this book provides clear examples of exactly what managers and employees alike can do to lighten the tone in the work environment and allow employees to have more fun at work.

From AAA’s “Dump a Dog” program where workers can pass their least-wanted project on to their manager and Houzz’s complimentary office slippers to CARFAX’s themed-wardrobe Zoom meetings and Google’s company-approved Nerf-gun battles and paper airplane contests, you’ll find dozens of ideas you can immediately adapt and implement in your own workplace.

Work and fun have typically been considered polar opposites, but this book proves they can be integrated in ways that produce more motivated workers - and exceptional results.
