For some companies, reports serve as a necessary evil. They can be used to inform management of important company information, but they’re usually boring and presented in spreadsheet format. This is one big problem that most companies would love to remedy.

I’m not sure what the best solution is for all companies but I know that most would benefit from implementing at least one or two of these fun reports:

1) Monthly department meeting minutes

This type of report could contain items such as team updates, special assignments, and general announcements. It’s essentially the written version of the short department meetings that you probably already have.

2) Company wine log

Everyone likes wine and this report will save you time on figuring out ‘who drank my last bottle? Everyone loves a glass or two, so why not use it to your advantage and let it spice those boring old reports up a bit.

3) Monthly or annual report newsletter

It’s pretty straightforward, but most companies don’t have a written record of their month. Having this type of report is the perfect way to keep everyone informed on what they can expect from you and your company in the future.

4) Corporate ‘Roast’ annual report

Every company has its bad apples, so why not use them as your next hilarious report? If you’re really feeling up for a challenge, try writing a roast for your CEO or top manager. It will definitely be an interesting read! Just make sure you save it as an email draft first…

5) Company Birthday book or wall calendar

This one makes keeping track of birthdays super easy. You can have this report automatically generate the date, name, and email of each employee’s birthday. Then just go to their profile page on any given day and you’ll see who’s celebrating – no searching required!

6) Monthly summary report playlist

This is the perfect list for those long office hours. Every company has its unique personalities so it’d be silly not to take advantage of them by compiling a monthly playlist with everyone’s favorite songs! The best part? Just click onto anyone’s public Spotify account and you can use that as your source.

7) Ice breaker game or activity

You know those meetings where everything seems awkward because people are too nervous to speak up? Well, why not try something different? Everyone loves an icebreaker game to break the ice, especially when it’s over something everyone loves (and not awkward). Prepare one or two activities in advance and make it fun for all.

8) Company survey report

When was the last time you asked your employees what they think about their job? This type of report will give insight on things like daily motivation, level of commitment, and how satisfied they are with your company culture. Besides… who doesn’t want to know that their employees love them?

9) Fake quarterly awards

Just because these awards aren’t real doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with them! Maybe you’re just looking for ways to get the competitive juices flowing between departments…..or maybe you’re just sadistic. Either way – here’s a good way to keep everyone on their toes.

10) Monthly email update

This is a great report for those of you who are constantly on the go and don’t have time to sit down every month to document everything that’s been happening. Just make sure you use an automated service to make it just a tad bit easier for you! Your emails will be automatically summarized into a simple, fun format monthly.

11) Company pet rock

Pet Rock reports became famous after Gary Dahl’s creative idea won him over $3 million in less than one year. This type of report requires some creativity but could really improve company morale if done correctly. Maybe your company just needs a little more fun? It can’t hurt to try! **NOTE: If you don’t feel creative enough to make a pet rock, there are companies that will do it for you.

12) A company story

This type of report is mainly for fun and laughs but can also be used as an inspirational tool for those ‘rough’ days at work. Just sit down with your employees and write up something that might improve their morale or just give them a reason to laugh at themselves.


While it might seem a little odd at first, implementing any of these reports will help improve company morale and increase workers’ interests in the long term. Even if you don’t have time to implement one or more of these reports yourself, why not give your favorite colleague a nudge in the right direction? They’ll be grateful for the tip later!

**Just remember that everything should be done with respect and within company policies. Don’t get carried away!
