Foundation Financial Group Uses Fun Fridays to Engage Employees

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) November 06, 2013

Foundation Financial Group announced the beginning of a new company-wide engagement tool: FFG Fun Fridays. Foundation Financial Group cultivates a workplace culture which recognizes that incorporating amusement into the work week promotes productivity and job satisfaction.

FFG Fun Fridays have the potential to help coworkers learn more about each other and laugh at themselves, said Chief Human Resources Officer James Brodsky. Changing up the routine every so often with something silly can bring everyone together and boost morale.

Gallup approximates disengagement in the United States costs $ 300 billion per year in lost productivity. A study conducted by The New York Times concluded that on days workers feel happier, they are significantly more likely to have innovative ideas and improved performance. Full-time employees spend the majority of their waking hours at work, which means a positive work environment has the power to profoundly impact a persons well-being.

Every three weeks, employees will be informed on Wednesday of that weeks FFG Fun Friday theme. The entire staff will be invited to, for example, show up in dated fashions on Decade Day. Employees who reach established productivity levels will enjoy an additional privilege, like wearing blue jeans. FFG Fun Fridays will encourage employees to display their creativity and sense of humor while adhering to the corporations code of conduct.

We had great success with our first FFG Fun Friday theme, Think Pink, said FFG Event Coordinator Samantha Epstein. FFG employees across the country shared photos of people in their office sporting pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Several employees also shared stories of breast cancer survivors they know, which was unexpected but inspiring. I hope FFG Fun Fridays will continue to engage our employees in positive and productive ways.

Foundation Financial Group looks for ways to encourage employees to display their FFG pride. In high school, students show their school spirit during homecoming week with similar days. FFG Fun Fridays allow employees to show enthusiasm for their company and careers. Employee engagement is always an FFG priority and vital aspect of FFG culture.
