Work isn’t all about the grind—not all the time.

Sure, by definition, work is an activity in which one exerts strength or faculties (physical or mental effort) to do or perform something. Thank you, Merriam-Webster dictionary. But, what that definition doesn’t explain is that work can’t be done thoroughly and to its greatest capacity unless you break it up… make it fun… laugh a little… breathe.

WINation is good at finding ways to break up the heaviness of a hard work day. The technical term for it is called “having fun at work” but we just call it keeping it real. Whether that means laughing at a funny animal video during our break or sharing candy with coworkers at that 3pm lull… we know how to make each other smile.

Take a look at the video to catch a glimpse of how we roll… WINation style. Hope to see you on the other side!

    Flexible manager, generally good work environment, opportunity for advancement


    Worried about future of company, some executives place heavy pressure on those under them, hours in some business units are excessive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your top performers, don't reward employees only because they are in the leadership program. Push top-line revenue and hold sales leaders accountable.
