APP.COM - Making the workplace the fun place

Yes, and it could lead to increased productivity, claims a recent article in the Asbury Park Press.

In an unscientific sampling of workers across the USA and Canada, it appeared that a bigger salary wasn't the main element of an enjoyable workplace. It was creative voluntary benefits, a friendly and healthy environment, and team spirit.

Workers were asked, What would make your workplace more enjoyable?" Here are some of their responses. See how many would make you happier!

- an cubicle/office with a window
- individual temperature controls
- weekly massages
- pet insurance
- ability to bring pets and kids to work
- flexible hours
- management who listen and offer face-to-face contact
