A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Work: Part One
Posted on December 7, 2014 under
Comedy in the Workplace

In an ever increasing stressful world, including in the workplace, there
are few immediate releases from the anxieties of life as effective as a
good laugh. The benefits of laugh have been studied, researched and
documented over the years. What is well established is that not only is
there emotional but physical benefits from laughter are instantly
therapeutic. So, add comedy and you and you release stress.

There are many opportunities to find humor in our daily life—on the
radio and on television, films, recordings, comedy clubs, podcasts, books
and on-line. However, there is one significant part of our daily lives that is
mostly void of the opportunity to experience the benefits of laughter, and
that is in the workplace.

It is ironic that in the place where many of us spend a majority of our
day— and where we are likely to experience the most stress— is also the
place where we also have the fewest opportunities to experience the joy
of a good humor. Sadly, the workplace today is generally void of many
opportunities for a good laugh. We are all too busy trying to get our
work done and satisfy our work goals. But can you imagine the extra
productively an individual, department or company would benefit from if
the company were to provide opportunities during to laugh a little. It
would be beneficial to everyone. And, ultimately it would impact the
bottom line. As management guru Peter Drucker once said: “Take care of
your employees and they will take care of your customers.”

In Part II of this series, I will site examples of some very easy and cost
effective ways in which to add humor to the workplace. For now, perhaps
consider evaluating some of the more stressful situations in the workplace.
In my corporate experience, some of my personal biggest stressors
included: preparing for meetings, giving presentations, meeting
deadlines, making do with too few resources, and managing difficult
employees. There are probably 30 or 40 additional situations I could cite
if I sat down and made a list of them , but I am sure you get the general
idea.

I’ll be back soon with more very soon. For now, I thought I’d get you
thinking about it.

Have a great holiday season. And, if you are planning an office or
corporate party or business event and want to add a comedian
(especially if you are in the NJ, NY, CT or PA area,) or comedy show
please get in touch with us. Nothing provides more fun at a company or
business party or event than hiring a comedian or booking a comedy
show for your corporate event. Okay, I know. Shameful plug!
Speak soon
