Partnering with another EA to try to change the culture in our office. Seems people are a little down right now. What are some ideas and things you have seen in your office that the employees loved?

I LOVE my job: but you ever have moments where you wonder how some of your ppl even get dressed in the morning? How can they be so smart and yet so helpless? Oh well. Keeps me employed :)
