Have Fun at Work Day (and Year)

You’ve made it through the work week and you’ve almost made it through January’s post-holiday blues. Well, guess what? Today you have an excuse to do something fun. It’s Have Fun at Work Day, a holiday that falls every year on the last Friday of January.

At Anthros we’re celebrating by wearing silly socks and having an ice cream sundae bar. How will you and your fellow teammates get into the #HaveFunatWorkDay spirit?

Today may give us an excuse to take a break from our routine, but it’s also a good time to remind ourselves that fostering a sense of fun in the workplace throughout the year is important too. An occasional fun team activity will relieve stress, bring coworkers closer together and increase the productivity of your team. Plus, it promotes employees’ connection with your company’s leadership, brand and values.

At Anthros we’re a small team and not above getting dressed up and acting silly when a holiday comes around. We also really like donuts. So here’s a look back at some of the fun (and funny) things we did in the office last year and that might get you thinking about your own #HaveFunatWorkYear

Act Like a Tourist

We took a look at our city from a different perspective: from a boat! Our team outing on the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour gave us a unique glimpse at the landscape and history of Winter Park.

Get Crafty

Getting in touch with our artsy side is a theme for us. During the holiday season we decorated stockings to hang in the office. Lesson: you can never have too much glitter.

Donut Day

Here’s a date to put on your calendar immediately: National Donut Day is Friday, June 2, 2017. Good thing Krispy Kreme is only 0.9 miles from our office.

Costume Contest

At Anthros we like dressing up for any occasion. Halloween, of course, but we also had Ugly Sweater Day during the holidays, and Red-White-and-Blue day for the Fourth of July.

Coloring Is for Adults Too

Have you tried your hand at coloring books for adults? We are hooked.
