April 2017 - When Joking with Your Employees Leads to Bad Behavior

A workplace filled with laughter is generally assumed to be a good thing. Several studies have found that good humor doesn’t just make people feel better, or make the work day seem to go faster; it actually delivers bottom line benefits. Employees who laugh together have been shown to be more creative, more collaborative and as a result more productive and profitable.

Likewise, humor has also been shown to boost status — executives who incorporate laughter and jokes in their work (as long as they are appropriate in nature) garner more support for their initiatives, are better at motivating employees, make more money, and get promoted more quickly.
