Increase productivity with this cool Summer Business motivator
Learn how you can increase productivity within your business using a simple, but cool tactic
Thankfully, there is a simple remedy to this problem: Ice cream.
Ice cream and fatty foods alike are what we all choose to divulge in when we feel the need for a little pick up, so why not use them as a motivational tool to increase productivity in your work force.
It’s been proven: Ice cream motivates
At the Institute of Psychiatry in London, Neuroscientists scanned the brains of people eating vanilla ice cream. They found an immediate effect was had on the orbitofrontal cortex – the processing area at the front of the brain – known to activate when people enjoy themselves.
If your workforce are enjoying themselves then they are likely to be much more productive. Simple!
Build an ice cream empire of resilience
Another interesting result of these studies was that the brains response to sadness was significantly reduced when a fatty product was infused in the stomach. Meaning that ice cream and other comfort foods are technically as good as anti-depressants.
Forget workforce therapy! Stock up on the creamy stuff instead!
Your employees will love you
A boss that brings in treats for their workforce is a very beloved boss indeed. It shows you think about and care for your employees’ welfare, which motivates them to do more because that care and attention is then reciprocated.
Give and take (and don’t forget to get one for yourself)
How do I afford all of this ice cream to motivate my workforce?
Ice cream can be costly when you’re buying for an entire company and it looks like it’s going to be a long summer this year so you’ve got to consider how you’re going to afford to keep your workforce motivated in this way.
