We caught up with Zuto Car Finance to see how the company are getting on with their latest Fun at Work.
The team at Zuto told us that it is quite a high pressure role so they wanted to create a space for their employees which would allow them to get away from their desks, take a break but also have fun at the same time.
It was clearly evident the moment we walked into their offices that the Fun at Work had a positive and lasting effect on the staff. You could feel the buzz of comradery and engagement flowing throughout their headquarters.
The Management at Zuto are massive supporters when it comes to fun atmosphere within the workplace and is always wanting to evolve this within their offices. This is why they love the idea of having new pieces of fun equipment arriving every single month.
We had a chance to sit down with the People and Culture Director at Zuto, Louise Northcott to get feedback on the effect Fun at Work is having in their offices.
“At Zuto, we’re proud to encourage fun in our workplace. We know that by introducing new ways to have fun our teams are at their highest level of productivity, we’re all about teamwork and the opportunity to get involved in competition brings everyone together. It’s great to see members of our Contact Centre take a break and network with members from across our business.
We ran competitions – it was brilliant to see the level of involvement and our active encouragement builds a culture where we stand out from other contact centres – our teams know we want them to take regular breaks, sitting at a desk with headphones in all day is unproductive and culture of the past!
Having fun in the workplace encourages team working, networking, a distraction from the every day and emphasises our fun culture. We’d recommend any workplace to do the same if they’re looking to boost their levels of engagement and productivity, especially in their contact centres.”
We were also able to have a great chat with David Rollinson the Facilities Manager (also Mental Health First aider) at Zuto about how their Fun at Work helped in creating healthy competition amongst their employees.
“We’re definitely enjoying having Fun at work and can’t wait to hold competitions with each piece of new equipment we receive!”
“The atmosphere was great when we had the Fun at Work equipment and we had plenty of interested spectators for the tournament which helped create a real Buzz around the office”
David also informed us that the staff were sad to see the equipment leave but were instantly besotted when they saw the next piece of Fun at Work being installed in their office and couldn’t wait to have a go.
He went on to tell us that with staff retention and recruitment, people look to their social media pages to get a feeling of the atmosphere at Zuto. With Fun at Work coming every month it strongly helps Zuto come across as a fun and engaging place to work.
Nick one of the Sales Teams and recent non-smoker told us how the Fun at Work has helped him continue his quest in stopping smoking by giving him a fun alternative that helps keep him preoccupied during his breaks.
He informed us of how the Fun at Work equipment has brought people together in the office that wouldn’t normally get a chance to communicate over a shared love for fun.
Finally, here at Fun At Work, we strongly believe that having fun makes seriously good business sense and we cannot wait to continue bringing the fun and excitement to the Zuto offices!
