1. Fun At Work in Action

Another great example of fun at work was sent my way. The
supervisors at a Cooperators Auto Claims call centre recently
threw an employee appreciation day. Employees were treated to
breakfast, lunch, and even cookies and chocolate milk. There
were opportunities for massages, a “match the employee to the
photo from grade school” contest, caricatures on a “wall of
shame” and a “decorate your office” event.

And even though they created an exceptionally fun day for all,
the folks at the very busy call centre still managed to
get their work done as productively as ever!
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Create a “celebrations calendar” for your office, where you can
highlight and keep track of any special events, holidays and
employees’ (or key clients) birthdays. And if you set it up
electronically, create reminders of significant dates two weeks
prior to the actual date so folks aren’t scrambling to find that
perfect birthday card on the afternoon of the big event.
3. Quote of the Week

“The most wasted day of all is that in which we have not
laughed.” Sebastian R.N. Chamfort
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky, World

Here’s a new humor term for you: “joke-jacking.” Joke-jacking
is stealing another comedian’s jokes, and of course is
considered a big no-no low form in the world of comedy.
(And if it’s stealing another joke about high-jacking by a
comedian named Jack, it’s called Jack-high-jack-joke-jacking.)

Happy Hump day folks. Remember to laugh at yourselves or others
will volunteer to do it for you!
