If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, just imagine what it does to a meeting agenda. When an individual engages in an activity he or she enjoys, the result is a boosted immune system, a sense of optimism, a fresh perspective and a feeling of belonging, according to the National Institute for Play. The rewards are multiplied in a workplace culture that values play. Doing so fosters creativity, problem solving and adaptability, and it prepares employees to thrive in the face of complex challenges—it builds a strong, engaged team.
