“Work hard, play hard!” Happy employees @Cluj VeLabs
All over the globe, the companies are searching the secret to make their employees more productive. Some of them have already found the answer and it seems that the solution is quite simple: a recent study conducted by University of Warwick found that happiness is leading to a 12% growth in productivity, while unhappy workers are 10% less productive.
Having fun @work is an idea that would seem too eccentric for some business domains while more and more IT companies are embracing this concept and understand the real benefits that stand behind.
You will find bellow some happy & awesome moments that we lived together as a team:
Ve coocking story by Camelia Gui
*** Once upon a time there was a guy that invented the Happy Friday concept. As the only one way suitable for closing a productive work week in the Agile environment. Then came VE Cluj suggesting to have chips and cookies and chocolate fudge, something bought from the supermarket and tasty beer to break the ice for weekly catch-ups between colleagues. Then came Elena Ariton, a loving person that adores making people happy through good food, surprises and tasty desserts. She baked cakes and pancakes for her colleagues, just because she loved to surprise people. On her own spending and on her own time. Then she figured out we could do that every Friday. So the boss here agreed to have our own kind of Happy Friday: the kind where people meet in the VeFlat on a Thursday to have fun and discover each other. Also, to learn how to cook, build lasting friendships and post jaw-dropping food pics on Facebook. Several other creative and funky guys joined Elena and formed the VeCooking team. Here to provide a healthier, happier Friday for VeCluj... Plus our visitors !
After completing team bonding activities together, employees better understand each others strong points, weaknesses, and interests. This helps them work even better together and improves their productivity. People are more creative when they are around people they are comfortable with. So, our bonding events not only bring people closer together but they also help them to generate new ideas.
Thank you guys for all these awesome moments!
