As part of human resource development, organizations and individuals are slowly appreciating the concept of planning and managing employee recreation. The study concluded that recreation is a significant factor in employee performance; increases the level of commitment, enhances bonding and improves employee wellbeing with a consequent positive effect on job satisfaction, service provision, customer satisfaction and productivity.

Much of the work requires employees to be constantly on their feet and customer interactions can be stressful, as employees may be verbally abused for service problems that are none of their doing and completely out of their control.

In an effort to help employees cope with such issues, organizations have invested in workplace recreation.
