The best types of holidays are the unofficial ones, and believe us when we say we were excited when we heard about National Fun at Work Day! Here at Mercedes-Benz of Temecula, we definitely aren’t strangers to having a little fun here and there to get out of the everyday work norm.

Little gestures like these certainly make our work atmosphere a pleasant one and in honor of this unofficial holiday, today we’re sharing a few ideas on how your office can partake in this weeks’ fun too. Of course we hope not all of your careers are less than exciting, but if you feel your work-life needs a boost for a few quick minutes, check out the following National Fun at Work Day ideas!
- Ice Cream Party: Who doesn’t like ice cream? Send a mass email to your department asking them to vote for their favorite flavor and treat everyone on the 28th with an ice cream lunch party.
- Themed Dress Code: Choose a theme to dress up to and choose a prize for best dressed. Some fun themes that aren’t so over the top can include best outfit in a certain color, best socks, sports jersey day, best hat, etc.
