In today’s episode, we have a 2 for 1 special, as I speak with Dr. Bob Nelson & Mario Tamayo to discuss the release of their book, Work Made Fun, Gets Done. Easy Ways to Boost Energy, Morale and Results.
According to Fortune magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For in America:” 81% of workers in the companies on the list say they work in a fun environment. Deloitte calls the 2020s "The Era of Workplace Fun."

With COVID waning, all employees want more fun than ever before. When you make fun part of your culture, workers will prosper— it’s a proven driver of desired results, creativity & better relationships.

And this formed the basis of a really entertaining, dare I say, fun discussion about all things organizational culture, employee recognition, engagement & hybrid work.

We talked about a world after covid. And how we believe organizations can differentiate themselves from the competition in an increasingly disruptive talent landscape. Against the backdrop of the Great Resignation, fun at work may be more important now than ever before.

We had a great discussion and I hope you enjoy it.
