Having Fun At Work Is More Important Than You Think [REPLAY]

Concrete tips to improve work life



Lunchtime Live! is over, but you can watch the video replay of the fun.

You dread coming to work. How do you change this toxic attitude, which is likely harming your productivity and health?

This is a problem that almost half of the United States workforce is facing, according to a recent Careerbuilder study. You need to enjoy your job to avoid unnecessary stress, feel worthwhile and be productive. These things go hand in hand. But how do you begin thinking about fun when you can only think about all the things that are wrong with your job?

Laurie Petersen, AOL Jobs editor-in-chief, will lead a conversation with:

Sydney Sloan, a social media guru at Jive Software, a company that builds software that makes it fun for people to work together through collaboration, community and social features.

Jack Silbert, an AOL Jobs contributor, humor writer, journalist, children's author, editor, movie reviewer, weekly internet-radio DJ, and frequent master of ceremonies.

Join them in a candid chat that will address real ways to improve your work life.

Return to this page on Friday at 12:30 ET to tune in.
