As I walk through the vibrant corridors of TEG Corporate, nestled in the picturesque heart of Cumbria, I’m struck by the laughter echoing off the walls and the unmistakable sense of camaraderie among the team. In a world where the workplace often conjures images of monotony and stress, TEG Corporate stands as a beacon of what it truly means to blend fun and productivity. I’m here to uncover their secret and share it with you. So, I’m sharing my journey and exploring how TEG Corporate has successfully infused fun and enjoyment into their workplace, transforming not just their office space but also their approach to work.

The Philosophy: Why Fun Matters at Work

Keith and the team at TEG Corporate believes that a happy employee is a productive employee. Research backs this up, showing that a fun work environment can lead to enhanced motivation, better job satisfaction, and increased productivity. In a study conducted by the University of Warwick, happy employees were found to be 12% more productive. At TEG Corporate, they’ve taken this to heart, understanding that enjoyment isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.

The Strategy: Integrating Fun into Work

1. Creative Spaces for Creative Minds

TEG Corporate has reimagined their office layout. Their spaces are colorful and open, designed to inspire creativity and collaboration. There is a relaxation zone with comfortable seating, understanding that sometimes the best ideas come when you’re at ease having a cup of coffee with a colleague rather than taking it back to your desk.

2. Celebrating the Small Wins

Acknowledging accomplishments, no matter how small, is a big part of TEG Corporate’s culture. Whether it’s ringing a bell when a team member completes a project or sending out a company-wide email celebrating a small win, they make sure everyone feels valued and recognised.

3. Encouraging Team Activities

Regular team-building activities are not just an add-on but a staple at TEG Corporate. These range from outdoor walks in the stunning Cumbrian landscape to creative workshops, fostering a sense of unity and breaking down hierarchical barriers.

4. Flexible Working Hours

Understanding the different rhythms of their employees, TEG Corporate offers (where possible) flexible working hours. This approach acknowledges that work-life balance is crucial for a happy, productive team.

5. Learning as Fun

Professional development is treated as an adventure at TEG Corporate. They offer a variety of learning opportunities, from workshops to online courses, ensuring that learning is interactive and enjoyable.

The Impact: A Happier, More Productive Team

The results of this culture shift are palpable. Employee satisfaction has soared, absenteeism has reduced, and productivity has seen a significant uptick. The team is more cohesive, creative solutions are more frequent, and the overall atmosphere is one of positivity and energy.
