...it's clear that keeping employees happy is one of the key areas that keeps these organisations moving forward.
Leeds, West Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 12 November 2013
Can the very recent success of Twitter's IPO be largely attributed to the implementation of a simple company games room? Rene Pierre (UK) believe it can be, and it's not just Twitter that go out of their way to try to make employees feel right at home...
Google does it. So does Pixar. Yet it appears as though creating a Fun (or Activity) Zone in the workplace is something that should be resisted at all costs for many UK businesses. Maybe it's the fact that simply having some fun at work just isn't British.
In an effort to highlight the benefits that many British based organisations are passing up, Rene Pierre, manufacturers of high quality table football tables and pool dining tables, have produced a handy and informative guide explaining the benefits and processes of having fun at work.
The guide takes information from Rene Pierre's own experiences over the past 60 years that the company has been manufacturing, along with research information and case studies. There is also access to a simple to use room planner to help anyone tasked with the role of planning an Activity Zone, ensure everything fits in.
Director of UK Distributor American Billiard Company, Mike Hemmins, explains a little more: "I've always been interested in how the world's most successful companies continue to grow year on year and from my own personal research and understanding, it's clear that keeping employees happy is one of the key areas that keeps these organisations moving forward. Having a Fun Zone helps get rid of stress and helps people interact and has been proven to increase job satisfaction and performance, but it still seems an alien concept for much of the UK. Something that we want to highlight and change..."
The guide can be accessed from the Rene Pierre UK website.
