Bosses Say That A Sense Of Humor Is Important
If you have ever wondered what makes one employee more of a favorite with the boss over someone else it could be that they have a nice sense of humor.
A new survey was done and most bosses say that, at some level, a sense of humor is a great quality to have as an employee.
PR Newswire found that 78% of bosses think that a sense of humor is a great quality to have in the workplace. Which explains why I haven't been relieved of my duties yet.
"It helps everyone bond, and helps keep things light."
That doesn't mean you need to start telling one-liners or force it. Just joking around and laughing at other people's jokes is fine.
There are a few things you should AVOID though . . .
Don't crack jokes during a serious meeting. Be careful about trying to be funny or sarcastic in emails, because it doesn't always land. Make fun of yourself, but not other people. And try to keep it as G-rated as possible.
