It also brings in an element of creativity as they come up with some crazy moves for those catchy beats. Don’t let work life make them dull and mundane.

Exercising, working out or gymming may not sound exciting enough to your employees. But think flash mob dance- Impulsive enough? It’s like a party, but one that also burns calories along with plenty of music and jiving.
Planning a flash mob at the workplace is actually not that hard. What your employees will need is a soundtrack that gets all their feet tapping. Also, the right timing when they can surprise the rest of the office, a spacious and prominent location. And of course, the enthusiasm to dance to their heart’s content. But mind you, this lively activity is going to need tons of practice and coordination which is what’s going to make this the ultimate blend of exercise and merriment.
If you’re looking for flash mob ideas for work that can motivate your employees, start by picking a popular and trending song. Make sure the choreography is unique and challenging enough for that adrenaline rush. If it’s the kind that requires your employees to dance with each other, even better. This is where team spirit’s gonna come in handy. Keep the duration short- not more than five to seven minutes. And don’t forget to get it all on tape!
