As described in the case on New Belgium Brewing Company as well as in this chapter’s opening vignette, companies are coming up with creative ways to introduce fun into the workplace in order to encourage employees to feel more involved with their work and experience positive emotions (happiness, joy, passion, etc.) at the workplace. With a group of four or five students, discuss your most recent work experiences in light of whether the employer tried to consciously introduce some fun workplace activities. What were the fun activities? Did they work? That is, did they draw employees in and increase their level of work engagement, or did they simply distract employees from doing the real work that was expected from them?
