At MeloTel, we have had the pleasure of calling Calgary-based Hire Value Inc. our client for the better part of the past two years. In working with these awesome recruitment experts, we’ve learned quite a lot about how to effectively acquire new talent. One thing that Hire Value Inc. heavily advises is to locate talented individuals who are great fits within a company’s culture.
A candidate’s personality counts for a lot. You may be able to find the most skilled individual in your field of work for a new job position you have available. But if that person doesn’t seem to be someone who would mesh well with your other employees, he/she wouldn’t be an ideal choice for a new hire.
As we pointed out in our last blog, the MeloTel team is comprised of talented individuals who all bring something unique to the table. However, what really makes our company successful is the fact that everyone on our team likes working with each other. It makes a big difference. When people jell well, they tend to be much more productive. And part of helping team members jell is ensuring their working environment is a fun place.
“Too often business owners and managers think that all work and no play is the best way to maximize productivity,” notes The1Thing.com, “It’s a good thing that researchers don’t automatically prescribe to this notion. Studies over the last two decades have revealed when workplaces make fun a factor it creates happier employees that feel more satisfied. And happy employees are all around better at their jobs.”
The1Thing.com goes on to point out that workplace fun has been linked to enhanced motivation, increased productivity, reduced stress, higher job satisfaction and improved task performance. “Having fun is one way of effectively managing and improving employees’ emotions,” the website explains, “It’s also proven to improve teamwork, build trusting relationships and increase employee retention.”
Wranx.com reveals that according to research published in the Dave Hemsath and Leslie Yerkes book “301 Ways to Have Fun at Work”, there is a direct link between workplace fun and workplace productivity. Happier employees deliver great customer service, enjoy greater job satisfaction and show great loyalty to the companies they work for, the authors note.
In keeping with Hire Value Inc.’s advice, Wranx.com believes that a business should redefine its company culture if it notices problems such as high employee turnover and low productivity rates.
“The way an organization operates is a reflection of its culture, so this should be your first port of call,” the site advises, “Try to create an atmosphere where employees can feel comfortable, express themselves, and collaborate with others. All the while, make it easy for staff to be productive, open up new communication channels or provide fun incentives to work harder.”
