At the end of the day, we’re creating value through engaging content, not invading Rome. We were built on our love & passion for storytelling and people. What’s not to love about that? Atum was created for fun. While we’re shaking up the digital content sector we’re giving it a taste of awe, a taste of whoa, a taste the people haven’t experienced before. We have a core belief and that is if you aren’t having fun at Atum maybe it’s time to either rethink what you’re doing or maybe it’s time to communicate. Entertainment and video enables fun, it gets us out of our shells and allows us to view the world in so many different ways. We share funny clips internally, attend comedy shows, art festivals and retreats all in the name of fun, and in return, we not only end up enjoying the work but end up boosting our productivity by making the workplace an enjoyable one. 

Here's how Atum's Film Production Team brings fun to the workplace:

1. Retreats
Get out of town, away from any reminders of work. This is such a great way to get your whole team to bond and build deeper relationships. We recently took a retreat to Burning Man this year which was an unforgettable experience. Not only did we have the chance to explore the beauties and wonders of the playa, but we were able to network, attend creative lectures, and build relationships on a global scale you can't normally find in the office. 

2. Communication
We all crave certain things whether that's validation or just to be heard, but it’s hard to guess what a person is thinking so its imperative that your team knows that they can express themselves and are free to communicate their ideas. Believe it or not, this makes your work environment a more enjoyable, fun and creative space. 

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.”
- Tony Robbins

3. Breaks
Whether you take an hour off to do office karaoke or even just to meditate, taking breaks together or alone to get your mind off of work is an essential part of the day. Try moving to a different desk or coffee shop to stimulate ideas. It works wonders for us. 

Try those 3 things and remember that life isn't that serious. Enjoy!

“My philosophy is: If you can't have fun, there's no sense in doing it.”
Paul Walker
