congratulations, you are a company that recognizes the value of great culture and where people love to work.
the challenge now is sustaining that culture and living your values on a consistent basis. the future of your organization is now in the hands of your great reputation as an employer - what are your plans to stay that way?
if the pressure is on to keep being awesome, i'd love to share a few engaging activities that will bring out the fun in your staff...
» trash talk hoops - grab a relatively clean trash can, unwanted documents (including the bills you don't want to pay) and a few disengaged co-workers. create two teams with three crumpled up sheets of paper each and have at it. the winning team gets a car (matchbox works every time.)
*micro-activities like this one can increase:
➊ sales by 37%
➋ retention by 44%
➌ creativity by 300%
➍ productivity by 31%
➎ increase attendance by 66%
consistency is key, according to Gallup, employees need to be engaged at least once every four weeks.
what does engagement look like for your organization?
✓ think brief- 15-30 minute activities monthly
✓ all-inclusive- 100% participation
✓ human resource approved
if your staff is not engaging as a team, let's chat. whether or not we decide to work together, i will share some fun ideas that will align with your culture. To make scheduling easier, here is a link to my calendar: https://calendly.com/nick-gianoulis/15min. please pick a time that works best for you.

-United Electric Supply-
District Sales Manager and Branch Manager
1988 – 2005
United Electric is a nationally recognized electrical distributor. During my tenure, I managed a sales force for an $80M enterprise, consistently exceeded sales targets, received multiple promotions, mentored some of the top reps in the country, and led sales teams to surpass revenue, profit, and customer service goals.
The company tantalized my entrepreneurial spirit by always giving me interesting, new challenges. Sometimes I was building something out of nothing – my favorite type of project!
But what I appreciated most was United Electric’s “work hard, play hard” culture. They regularly injected fun in the workplace… keeping morale, productivity, and employee retention at ridiculously high levels. In fact, it was their incredible example that inspired me to start my own company, The Fun Dept.
