Use 'Guerrilla Celebrations' To Inspire Employees

Do you know why most employees leave their jobs? Because they get in a "rut" and are, in a word, bored. Sweep employees out of their ruts by launching "guerrilla celebration" attacks. Close the office for one hour on Friday morning to have a "comedy party"where you show videos of popular sitcoms. Announce on Monday that Friday will be a half day, for no reason. Have bagels and coffee waiting for employees on a random Tuesday. Keep employees off balance about what you're going to do next. It's the sort of thing that separates one company from anotherand convinces employees to stay put when they are thinking about leaving.
