National Fun at Work Day

National Fun at Work day is based on the premise that work fun increases  job satisfaction, productivity and lowers absenteeism.  Well, as cats, we can testify to THAT!


Here at Chez Carol we share an office with a human, but are basically in charge. (as you can see)

BEST PRACTICES FOR JOB SATISFACTION

Truth be told, we keep things interesting (we'll illustrate below) and have LOTS of fun!  We do have certain "Best Practices" we wish to recommend to cats at large.

1. Observe workspace VARIETY to keep interest level high!  it is not necessary to always work from traditional locations like chairs.






2. Chairs are acceptable, though, if comfy! Do not be intimidated by humans into working from inferior spaces. INSIST on the best. It will enhance your work. "purrrformance."



3. "Fake it till you Make it!" Assume an attitude of confidence, from a position of power, even when you might feel otherwise.




4."Assume creative positions & "spread out" (while not relinquishing authority.) this position is more entertaining than just sitting + its harder for humans to relocate you.




5. LEATHER:
Try to interact & intertwine with articles found in your office. Leather can give a particular thrill.





By practicing the art of variety, creative positions & having a laugh or two we are certain we have increased our productivity. As for absenteeism, we are never absent from the office!

Oooh now that is such an excellent advisory post, I love it. We will be trying some of those alternate work positions later too! Is there a guidance post on office dress code?

Thank you for the tips, ladies! I will certainly be trying some of these out in my home office. Paisley & Webster already do the "spread out" one a lot!

Well it's easy to see that you girls are IN CHARGE of the office area - as long as your Mom obeys the rules and doesn't try to modify the existing procedures in the office, you should certainly have a MOST PLEASANT environment!! Good luck with that.

Hugs, Teddy

Peaches and Paprika said...

Yes! Go nude, we say!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank U for your comment. The "Spread" is one of the most important positions! We applaud their understanding of office decorum.

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank U, Teddy, for your support. We are always trying to tell her that!

Mom knows she has lots more fun at home blogging with us that she did at her last job. Her boss had a conniption if any employees were even talking to each other...and this was at a college...not a sweat shop. We kitties keep things interesting at home. Thanks for hopping with us. Keep up the good work. We know your mom appreciates it. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

You sure are gorgeous co-workers!

Sasha said...

Peaches and Paprika, you are kitties after my own heart! I love the way you creatively interact with your human's workspace. She must really appreciate your being there. At least she will be kept busy and not fall asleep at her desk (if she ever gets there).

Peaches and Paprika said...

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank U so much for appurrrrreciating our efforts!

Timmy Tomcat said...

Hi to our favorite ladies. We want to thank you so much for coming by and giving us all support when Mr Buttons had to go over the Bridge. You are right that he will no longer be bugged by things he does not like and all our friends and family will be there to greet him. We here do miss that little fellow. He was a dear friend.
Purrs to you both and Mom
Timmy, Dad and Family
