Humor at Work: All in the Family to Motivate Employees

1. All in the Family

Here’s an inspiring idea that really inspiring workplaces do
in an effort to ensure they are truly helping their employees
live a well-balanced life: they interview the spouses of their
employees for their thoughts on how successful the organization
really is at achieving a sane work-life balance, and they ask
the spouses for their ideas on how they can better improve
work-life balance.
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Create wacky, creative and fun names for your everyday office
locations and equipment. We’ve talked before about companies that
create more inspiring or offbeat names for their meeting rooms
(such as Google, which has tagged all their meeting rooms with
monikers such as “The Secret Undisclosed Location”). But why stop
at meeting rooms? Try holding a naming contest for your hallways,
elevators, washrooms or even the office photocopier. (Who wants to
trudge off to the photocopier when you could be heading off for a
chat with “Fred” or “R2D2” or paying a visit to “The Matterhorn”
or “The Clone Factory.” Okay, so it’s early. You’ll come up with
better names I’m sure.)
3. Useful Summer Work Phrase of the Week

“It might look like I’m doing nothing, but at the cellular level
I’m really quite busy!”
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky, World

It would appear everyone is dancing these days. In fact in Japan,
dancing has gone to the dogs. Yes folks, mutt-mania has taken over
in Japan, where you can now enroll your pooch in dancing lessons.
Apparently it’s not humiliating enough to dress your pet up like
an idiot, we now have to make them dance like one too. Woof.

Happy Hump Day one and all.
