Company That Institutes Mandatory Recess Experiences Record Growth

"Look at me, I'm playing on the slide and in the sand! Hope you're enjoying the jungle gym losers!"
Gary, Pennsylvania - It makes for a long day of work when eight hours of it are spent staring at a computer screen or sitting at a chair flipping through papers or talking on the phone. With that though in mind, Zippy Dooda Doorknobs CEO Robert Helmet implemented a new recess policy in an attempt to give employees a break and refresh them for the later portions of the day.

"Our corporate office is across the street from a playground and I often notice employees looking longingly as the children played, wishing it were them," said Helmet. "One day, I decided to let them play."

After the recess, employees of Zippy Dooda where so energized and ready to work that Helmet instituted the recess as part of everyone's daily schedule. While it is an odd sight seeing adult men and women dress in business attire swinging on swings, hanging on monkey bars, and sliding down ladders, the immediate results of such a break have been phenomenal. Profits since instituting the new policy have increased by 200%, which is saying a lot in today's slumping economy.

"After the recess, employees are excited, happy, and generally feeling great," said Helmet. "The carryover effect from this directly translates into increase productivity which prior to implementing this policy would drastically tail off at the end of the day."

"I like to build a sand castle and then hang upside-down on the monkey bars for a while," said salesman Ryan Jarvis. "When I get back to work, my blood is pumping and I feel great. This leads to better interactions with the customer and ultimately more doorknob sales."

Helmet is intent to make recess even more enjoyable (which he hopes will lead to even more increased productivity) by introducing the occasional Four-Square tournament and having a new sand crane installed (the old one "has seen better days" as one employee described). There is also talk of the occasional fieldtrip to other playgrounds in the area so that employees don't get tired of the same recess activities each day.
