Abstract: Work fun is a phenomenon which has not been studied much till now and a lot of research work is being dedicated to this aspect these days. The managers over the world are discovering new ways of adding fun in their work environment as it benefits both the employees and the organisation. According to several studies, a fun working environment adds to the employee as well as organisational productivity while reducing stress and turnover intentions among employees. There are a lot of different activities that can be used by an organisation to add fun to work, but all activities are not considered equal by different strata of the employees in doing so.
