This e-book of Employee Relations seeks to bring critical voice to the notion of 'managed' fun at work and to challenge existing perceived wisdoms – from both the practitioner and academic communities. Although apparently rapidly surrendering to budget cuts in these currently recessionary times, ideas of fun, play and laughter have provided the latest management fad, peddled as a means to involve and empower employees. The last decade has duly seen a growing emphasis on the notion of fun at work as a much vaunted employee engagement mechanism.
