Purpose- This study aims to determine the effect of recreational entertainment activities including indoor and outdoor games, contests, competitions, festivals and celebrations of various events, etc. conducted by organizations on job satisfaction of employees
Methodology/Sample- For this paper, survey and interview methods have been used. Structured questionnaires were administered through e-mail to sixty respondents from two companies in the telecommunication sector. Hypothesis testing has been done through ‘Regression Analysis’ and ANOVA.
Findings- The research showed that companies have started changing their old methodology of operating. Because of the swift changes and the highly competitive environment; companies are considering the idea of putting fun and entertaining activities at work. It further shows that fun-filled activities not only result in better interpersonal relationships but also lighten up the traditional work environment while making the workplace comfortable and a less stressful place.
Recreational and entertainment activities may bring a positive change in job satisfaction level but it is not the sole contributor to job satisfaction. Moreover, it can be implied that employees at different levels have different needs and desires. For middle and higher levels, recreation and entertainment may be important but lower-level management may have different aspirations so fulfilling the personal needs of employees is a highly significant aspect that should be taken care of.
