1. Another Survey Highlights the Power of Humor at Work

Look at the following figures and consider how your workplace
stacks up . . . a survey of 1,000 Australian employees by the

The work habits of their boss, goofy colleagues and unusual
client requests all ranked high on a list of what made

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

It’s Groundhog Day today, a great reminder of how celebrating
odd holidays can help you stand out from the herd with your
clients or customers (assuming you’re into standing out from
the herd), because nothing says “We’re-thinking-of-you-and-we’re
just-a-little-bit-different-from-everyone-else” better than
a “Happy Groundhog Day-May You Always See Your Shadow!”
card. Of course if you missed Groundhog day, there’s
also Weatherman’s Day (February 5th) and Valentine’s Day (14th),
not to mention February is also Meat Month and Canned
Food Month . . .

Happy Hump Day one and all!
