How to Connect With Humor at the Workplace
Do you try to connect with humor in your workplace?

If you don't, you could be missing out on some great connections with your employees.

Laughter, humor, and fun in the workplace are critical to employee and patient satisfaction.

If you did a Google search about humor in the workplace, you'd find over 40,000,000 listings. There is a lot of valuable information on the subject - and there's a reason why!

Why It's So Important to Connect With Humor in the Workplace

When we connect with humor, people become friends and create relationships that help improve the workplace environment.

Relationships help people stay at work - they help with employee retention and make employees happier, more productive, and more willing to come to work every day.

Work matters - but the relationships with the people you work with matter too.

Loyalty at work hasn't come to an end. It's been replaced with loyalty to friends.

When you connect with humor at work, it helps people get to know their co-workers more personally.

One exercise to have fun and connect with people at work is to bring their baby photos. Put a number on the front and a name on the back. Have a contest to guess who is who. It's a great way to have a little bit of fun.

You can also choose a day of the week and call it 'Fun Day.' Just have fun!

Remember: the team that plays together, laughs together, and is silly together, stays together.

Create Meaningful Relationships With the People You Work With

When you connect with humor and build relationships with the people you work with, you can significantly improve your everyday life in the workplace.

Inspire the best in every employee by building relationships with them. Relationships help make the workplace fun - they make people excited to go to work, reflecting how they treat their patients.

Remember: hospital staff members play a vital role in a hospital. Great employee satisfaction means excellent patient satisfaction.

Here are reasons why you should connect with humor in the workplace:

  1. The whole point of playing together is to create excellent relationships that help people appreciate each other and stay together.
  2. Loyalty at work hasn't ended, but it is replaced by loyalty to one's friends in the workplace.
  3. Play games at work and have fun.
  4. Always remember the team that plays together stays together.
