Humour in the Workplace
In today’s day and age of difficult business transition, it has become increasingly difficult to judge the effect of your particular brand of humour. At Hill Advisory Services we often encounter people that believe that there can simply be no humour in the workplace.
We often hear phrases like, “I can’t say anything at work” or “I guess we can’t have any fun at all.”
We could not disagree with that sentiment more! We urge people to find humour that doesn’t target, degrade, humiliate etc. We have heard the response, “There are no jokes that do not target someone.” Again, we could not disagree more! Have a look at the brand of humour used by Bill Cosby for example. Sometimes good humour is the only thing that brings us back to the workplace following a difficult day!
