March 6, 2013 - Powell, TN

HR Comp is a professional employer organization (PEO) that offers a long list of services to assist small and medium business owners in streamlining the operations of their companies to better serve their employees and clientele. As such, the organization has taken a keen interest in the latest trend of "fun" workplaces, which is well described in a recent article published by Business Standard. Here, the professionals at HR Comp assert that a creative work environment can engage employees and, ultimately, result in lower turnover rates and a happier office.

According to the article, companies are now hiring consulting firms, such as Never Grow Up, to create a higher degree of engagement among employees. These niche businesses come into an organization and pinpoint the needs of its team. Based on the data collected and the analysis performed, the specialists develop an engagement strategy that will enhance the creativity and "fun" within the workplace. The article cites the example of a financial services firm to demonstrate: "Employees at a financial services firm are not staring at a computer in front of them and endlessly typing e-mails. They are seen walking up to one another's cubicle and talking about everyday work and queries. If you thought that the employees' computers are under repair, you are wrong. It is a 'no-mail' day in office."

"We have always encouraged our clients to give employees an open opportunity for creative expression instead of a rigid 'by the book' set of guidelines," asserts a representative from HR Comp. "It brings a positive element to the workplace and can stimulate creativity within individuals and others in that environment. Happy employees are usually productive employees, and this creative atmosphere often results in a lower turnover rate for business owners."
