Why is it important?

Our work and non-work lives are more intertwined than ever before and employers are trying to strategically find ways to address this overlap including providing opportunities for employees to engage in non-work leisure type activities at work. We wanted to understand better how these activities influence employee engagement.


I'm very interested in this line of research because it can help both employers and employees gain insights about how to design more engaging experiences at work.
