Shortage of care workers, partly caused by employee turnover, is a serious problem in the rapidly aging Japanese society. Main reasons for leaving their jobs are problems related to human relationships and attitudes towards corporate philosophy. Effects of workplace fun on preventing employee turnover were examined by developing a model. A questionnaire was administered to care workers (N=165) at special nursing homes for the elderly between March and April in 2017, and 155 responses were collected. It inquired about human relationships at workplaces, team-based care, attitudes toward corporate philosophy, work satisfaction, and the frequency of spending private time with coworkers. Covariance structure analysis and correlation analysis indicated that workplace fun leads to satisfaction with the workplace, correlated with a mutually supportive climate, mediated by mutual recognition, sympathy with corporate philosophy, and orientation for team care. Moreover, a certain correlation was observed between workplace fun and spending private time together. Workplace fun solved human relations problems and attitudes toward corporate philosophy, which are major reasons for employee turnover. This prevented employees leaving their jobs. Fun at workplaces could change the image of care workers, and contribute to dealing with the aging society. Interactions outside the workplaces might improve work climate. Making workplaces more fun could solve problems of elderly care facilities troubled by a shortage of workers. Fun might change the image of care workers and contribute to dealing with the aging society. Interactions outside of workplaces have been decreasing for these several decades. However, their importance should be reconsidered.
