I have worked in this area.. Certain activities that you can plan are :
1) Fun activities- Theme days, contests and competitions, Birthday celebrations, sports day etc
2) Reward functions - Awards on performance / attendance.
3) Comunication Forums - Schedule Com. forums between Leaders and employees like Open House, Leaders speak etc.
4) Family day - Employees can invite family members to workplace.
Besides the everyday fun element, there are tactical initiatives that revolve around pay , growth and Employee satisfaction.
Hope this helps.

I am a little surprised to see the lack of innovation in the responses.
Even in todays' world, the advise given is more of making an attractive 'carrot' for the 'donkey' to run the cart... Its time you innovate your approach and get to understand that one is dealing with real-life workforce... people who can think and understand their engagement factors rather than the approach proposed by others... After all, an entrepreneurial approach will also prove that you are well engaged with your job. :-) We can help you here professionally.
We have a transformation tool to improve employee engagement.

I agree , providing complete ownership to the production is the best way to motivate employees.
Entrepreneurial programs works best when the environment and behavioral inclinations are aligned. Often, employees see such an offer as instability full of unworthy challenges. No matter how big incentives you may design, the risk would always be bigger. The learning gained through the process is the real takeaway. But from my experience, its an extremely difficult to sell such a program to your employees.
In case the employees already have that go-getter and entrepreneurial capabilities inbuilt in them, its easy to make such a program work.
I wish to refer this article from HBR , which discuss 'What it means to work here' . The moral of the story remains , the best place to work is one in which acknowledge and allows the employee to do their best .

(Cite Contribution) and Aashnaa,
Let me qualify my post... Think of yourself as an enterprise... Now you have a different perspective.
Owning a profit center is a different skill-set and is beyond pure entrepreneurship... It is more of a corporate position than an entrepreneurial position. And it is more of responsibility than ownership in that case. What I am talking about is a little more fundamental... Its like asking, would you like to be your own boss and yet be paid for it from someone else? (No guesses for your answer!)
It must be carefully implemented by using the right tools...

Agree with Meenakshi, there is merit in sharing best practces rather than throwing random nuggets of wisdom :)

Ruchie and Meenakshi,
I hear you!!! As for random nuggets of wisdom, well, if you might want a full fledged solution, just call me. :-)
And Citehr is working on it. (Cite Contribution) has been given the reference material and she would be posting it in a few days. I was unable to do so myself, hence, bear with the situation with patience please.
I am getting the critics-eye here, which is good... probably :-)
