Improve productivity with a laugh
Managing director Jim Venables said: “An upbeat working environment creates a better atmosphere and when used appropriately, humour can encourage higher staff morale and more energy.
“It’s about taking what you do very seriously while not taking yourself too seriously!
Ros Coleman, stress therapist and former vice chairman of the International Stress Management Association UK, said: “Humour in the workplace can enhance motivation and team-building, as well as helping to promote health and workplace wellness.
“It can also reduce workplace stress and tension.”
“Often jokes and gags can be used as a tool to knock down personal barriers and help build lasting interpersonal relationships with your co-workers. “
