The serious business of fun whilst working remotely.

Tobias Lütke — CEO of Shopify.

“Loneliness in the office can affect both professional and personal well-being.”

“63% of respondents have said that the coronavirus pandemic is the most stressful time of their entire professional career.”

69% of respondents have experienced burnout since the pandemic started, up from 52% in May.”

“Play at work is linked with less fatigue, boredom, stress, and burnout in individual workers. Play is also positively associated with job satisfaction, sense of competence, and creativity.”

“…increased trust, bonding and social interaction, sense of solidarity, and a decreased sense of hierarchy. Furthermore, findings suggest that play at work can benefit whole organizations by creating a friendlier work atmosphere, higher employee commitment to work, more flexible organization-wide decision making, and increased organizational creativity.”
