How to Support Your Employees’ Hopes & Dreams
There’s always a sense of re-setting and renewing in the month of January, even this January at the start of a new year with still ongoing uncertainties due to the virus-that-won’t-go-away!
The phrase ‘out with the old, in with the new’ carries with it an energy about moving forward with a ‘refreshed’ outlook. Armed with resolutions and re-imagined hopes and dreams, how can you best support your employees so they and you can benefit from and make the most of this positive energy at the start of this year?
Hopes & Dreams Need Support!
We all have hopes and dreams, but sometimes we take too little action to make them come true. What is it that gets in the way? While the pursuit of a goal can give our life purpose, energy and excitement, it can also bring anxiety, insecurity and overwhelm. Sometimes, simply acknowledging what we want can arouse feelings of longing and despair. Avoiding those uncomfortable feelings by giving up only works short term – long term it can leave us feeling stuck, depressed, or empty. Eloops is here to help!
Our newest collection of content items has been designed to help you not only support your employees’ hopes & dreams, but also to encourage and inspire them to refresh & renew and dream big for themselves. Choose from the range that includes items containing tips & inspiration as well as challenges and quizzes that everyone can enjoy and benefit from, wherever they are. Amplify the energy of the start of the year across your whole workforce and demonstrate your support for your employees living their best life!

The Importance Of Fun At Work
You may have noticed we are on a mission at Eloops to ensure employees in all companies and organizations get to have fun at work! We focus on developing content items that make it easy for you to deliver the kind of fun experience in your work environment that not only helps bring out the best in your people, but also positively impacts your business results.
The evidence that fun at work boosts productivity is compelling. A happy work environment means fewer sick days, harder work, and greater productivity. Research shows employees with a positive mindset are 31% more productive than those with a negative mindset – or even a neutral one. And companies with happy employees outperform the competition by 20%.
Positive work cultures don’t just happen – we Loopers think every day is a Fun At Work Day of course! In addition to all of our new items detailed above we offer you All Work & No Play, a special fun quiz all about Fun@Work designed for you & your employees to have fun with. And a simple 2 question Fun@Work Survey for you to explore how well you are doing Fun@Work now & get some ideas from your employees for how to do it better.
Ensure you are supporting the hopes & dreams of your workforce in the most effective ways possible this January with Eloops!
