1. Making Work a Family Affair

We’ve all heard of “Take Your Daughter/Son/Gerbil” to work
day. Organic, a web design company in New York, took the
concept further by holding a “Take Your Parents to Work Day”
so that employees’ parents could figure out just what the
heck their kids do all day. Other companies are holding
“Family Open Houses” so the entire family can meet
co-workers and feel connected to the workplace, while truly
inspiring workplaces have been known to not only thank
and reward employees, but thank the families or spouses of
employees for their support as well!

Inspiring, healthy workplaces recognize that employees
have lives (what a concept!) that extend beyond the 9-5
workday. And when an employee’s family feels connected or
even involved in their job, workers report feeling less
stressed and happier—both at home, and at the office.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Hold a contest for the most creative or humorous slogan for
your workplace. For example, the slogan for the company
Dave’s Drilling and Blasting is “We Don’t Stand Behind
Our Work – We Stand Behind a Tree.” Or the slogan for
an optometrist’s office in California: “If You Can’t Read
This, You’ve Come to the Right Place!”

3. Quote of the Week

“Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older
and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.”
Dali Lama

4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

Researchers in Japan have, after hours and hours of
meticulous sociological and psychological research,
discovered the ultimate, most effective pickup line.
The line, translated into English, is: “This
time next year, let’s be laughing together.”
(Now if they could only figure out the ultimate
telemarketer rejection line).

Happy hump day. This time next year, let’s all agree to
be laughing together, okay?
