Why not embrace laughter and humor into corporate culture

Fostering a culture of having fun is a crucial part of business success

Laughing should be a crucial ingredient when drafting the corporate culture change, especially in work environments that are intense, high-pressure and passionate.

Laughter is in fact a product of humor and instilling it at work creates a positive environment that builds bonds between colleagues, encourages positive and innovative thinking – creates better communication and eliminates negative attitudes. The result of which is increased productivity and profitability.

Creating an environment where humor – and laughter – is viewed positively will create a place of enjoyment. It’s this enjoyment that will create a more productive, more efficient workforce where everybody will feel more engaged with the business.

Before getting carried away with the concept of humor and laughter at work, there is some small print that leaders should be made aware of … Using humor certainly won’t suit every organization and should never be used as a quick fix for employee engagement problems.

For humor to flourish, an environment needs to exist that employees feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed within. This will then naturally inspire people to express themselves – from which humor will organically grow and with it so will laughter.
