One of the least explored components of industry as a systems input is the area of recreation and leisure. The purpose of this article is to explore the interface between work and recreation and leisure activities, in terms of establishing relationships and outcomes from this interaction. Results suggest that industrial recreation is a company service that acts as a preventative dimension to create satisfaction among employees. Recreation and leisure is a bridge that serves as an integrating device or vehicle among the employee, company, and community, to provide a cooperative atmosphere for the frank exchange of ideas and the development of common goals.
