One of the foundations of our success is our Bantam Industries, Inc. company culture. We pride ourselves on our immersive environment, which allows all members of our team to get to know one another on a deeper level. From team nights to travel opportunities, there’s always another way to become closer to those with whom we work. One of our favorite gatherings was our recent outing for Halloween, when we visited a haunted house together.
Our fun Bantam Industries, Inc. outings are far from frivolous. Aside from the fact that we’re having a good time together, there are distinct business advantages to creating a merry workplace as well. One of the most important is that happy team members are more productive. In an experiment conducted by the Social Market Foundation, 700 individuals were randomly selected and either shown a series of 10-minute comedy clips or given snacks.
Once scientists had confirmed that both groups of people were made happy by what they had received, subjects were asked to perform various tasks. Those who received what were later coined “happiness shocks” were up to 20 percent more productive than the group that had only been given food and beverages.
This is just one of the many reasons we consider cultivating a fun, inviting culture to be one of our top business priorities. Learn more about our office atmosphere by following Bantam Industries, Inc. on Twitter.
