A few years ago, the Ecsell team was working on uncovering what the best teachers and coaches were doing differently to improve the experience of their students and athletes. What we discovered were some astonishing results that begged an important question: if having fun impacts engagement in the classroom and on the field, does it impact engagement in the workplace as well? Turns out, it does.

Importantly, our research found that whether or not a manager creates a fun work environment has a strong impact on how effective they are in their roles. We also found that managers who make work more fun significantly decrease turnover.

But what does it mean to make work fun? Too many leaders think the solution is happy hours or a foosball table. We dove into our survey data to better understand what employees actually mean they rate their manager as creating a fun work environment. That is, what are the actions and behaviors of “fun” managers?

Fill out the form below to see the data, understand what it really means to make the workplace “fun,” and learn 3 key ways to start creating a fun environment for your team.
