The Health Care Manager: July 2005 - Volume 24 - Issue 3 - p 268-275 Buy Abstract This study examined the extent to which health care workers' attitudes toward fun influenced their level of experienced fun and job satisfaction. We also examined their perceptions of whether 40 workplace activities were fun or not fun. Our results showed that, in general, our sample expressed positive attitudes regarding the appropriateness, salience, and consequences of having fun at work. In addition, those who reported experiencing greater levels of workplace fun had significantly higher job satisfaction. Implications for health care institutions are discussed. © 2005 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
