Fun in the workplace

It's the weekend so a less serious view of world is required! I came across a site just the other day called Office Olympics and is probably more about entertaining employees rather than using fun and humour to motivate staff to work harder.

I think the idea is you get to download some short videos that involve suggestions for workplace games - examples include: office chair destruction, office chair battle, cubicle hurdles, chairiot race, office chair swap, chair hop do, and many, many more...You obviously need some chairs, an office (ideally of the cubicle variety) and some willing subjects.

I haven't had chance to download any of the short movies as I'm stuck on dial-up Internet when I'm not at work, but it looks worthy of quick try out.
