I think Fastspot is one of the best places to work, and I believe most of my coworkers would agree with me. Why? It's actually not because of the great clients we have, or how creative our work is, or how many Webbys we have on our shelf. It is about how much fun we have at work. How important is having fun? Critically important.

In fact, having fun might be the single most important ingredient in the recipe for a business thriving and growing. I certainly think businesses can get by without fun, but add in fun, and watch out! Here are the things a culture of fun accomplishes:

  • You look forward to going into work every morning
  • You don't mind going above and beyond to help your coworkers
  • You genuinely care about what your team is creating
  • Your health is improved from laughter on a daily basis
  • You keep a good perspective on things
  • You don't stress out over the little things
  • You don't foster or get involved in drama
  • You become closer with your coworkers and managers
  • You become closer with your clients and other vendors
  • You don't take yourself too seriously
  • You appreciate the people around you for who they are, not what they do

In true Fastspot fashion, we've honored our respect for "fun" by creating another random and whimsical Holiday video for you to enjoy. And remember, sometimes fun is about nothing more than being silly, together. Happy Holidays to all of you, and may your 2011 be filled with as much fun as possible!
