Lumene begin to use Cuckoo first and foremost because they wanted to create a playful culture to the working environment. They wanted to decrease the seriousness from the atmosphere and remind the employees, that they can have fun at work. Cuckoo has supported this goal, and the communication between colleagues has improved. For example, comments such as:” Oh you’re doing that break, we did it yesterday” demonstrates the increased playful interaction at the work place. Cuckoo has been an icebreaker that has helped people to speak more, which has also enhanced work related communications.
“We wanted to limit the overly serious atmosphere, because it is important that employees enjoy being at work, as this also improves in better overall results. We wanted to increase small talk among employees, create communality and lighten the mood”, says Lumene’s HR manager Nina Ylitalo.
Cuckoo was the perfect solution for Lumene, because it doesn’t only offer physical health but also improves mental and social well being. Results for the physical aspect came clear already in the beginning. Employees themselves mentioned that by using Cuckoo their neck and shoulder pains have been relieved.
