Playful memos. Recess at work. Desk decorating awards. High Five Tuesdays. Studies show that adults who play at work are happier and more productive. Some great company leaders have instated a “chief fun officer,” installed a rock-climbing wall or even a giant slide in the office.
We want to recognize the Most Playful CEO of 2012. Past winners have encouraged movement in the conference room, brought employees together for a high ropes course, or even celebrated with a company-wide Olympic Games challenge. As Trailblazers President Larry Miller, a past award winner, put it: “Work and play go hand and hand. A community coming together to play is going to help that community work better together.”
New Balance CEO Rob DeMartini took home the honors last year. LiveOpps CEO Maynard Webb won the inaugural award in 2009.
