Tomorrow is Let’s Laugh Day!
Business is sometimes serious; we all know that there are times when a certain gravity is needed. However, a little levity can go far in defusing tense situations and sometimes can make people comfortable enough to want to work with you again. According to the Harvard Business Review, laughter can bring a sense of creativity and well-being to any business situation, as well as relieving stress and spurring productivity.
Just think – what do you remember more: a shared laugh, or a dry conversation?
Not only can humor brighten your day, but you can also use a light hearted touch in your day-to-day life, too. An easy way to create a happy environment around your office is to offer a casual day. Fun branded t-shirts, like this District blended tri-piece tee, can loosen up your staff while still bringing a cohesive business feel.
Here at Madison Top, we recently closed the shop early so that our employees could watch “Deadpool” at the theater. That might not be feasible for every office or company, but that’s just one example of how working in fun can help foster a great workplace for everyone.
Have fun with your customers and your employees. In the long run, they’ll thank you, and you’ll see the benefits.
