Nick Gianoulis, Founder of The Fun Dept., which is a consulting and training company that has been featured on CNN, BBC News, Washington Post, TEDx and numerous other media outlets. Its clients range from Fortune 100 companies to those with as few as 10 employees.
Known as, “The Godfather of Fun,” he began his company after experiencing firsthand the enhanced culture and business results of fun during his 20-year corporate management tenure with a company that embraced a “work hard, play hard” culture. Nick is also the co-author of Playing It Forwardand creator of Break Box, a B2B team building subscription service.
The Fund Dept. has delivered more fun in the workplace than any other company in the world, building brief, consistent, engaging and sustainable activities into the corporate culture that is more important than ever, thanks to the presence of millennials. In 2018, his company partnered with Delivering Happiness (Zappos) to offer their clients full service culture solutions.
Employee engagement should be embedded in the culture of every organization. When employees are engaged in the workplace, they are more satisfied in their position, trust decision makers, feel that they are a valued member of a team environment, and believe their contribution to the workforce matters. Engaged employed are more productive and tend to stay with the company longer. This webinar will help to define why employee engagement is important, how to foster engagement, as well as how to motivate disengaged employees to become more engaged. In this webinar, you will learn: Why fun matters for employees, customers and the bottom line? How fun can be a valuable and effective engagement tool? As well as the proven methodology to design and implement a sustainable program of engagement through fun workplace team building activities.
