Humour helps talent retention

No surprises, a new study by Maren Rawlings of Swinburne University of Technology  found that humour in the workplace contributes to job satisfaction and is linked to productivity.

After a tumultuous battle with Microsoft, Yahoo invited Matt of ‘where the hell is Matt’ fame to infuse humour in the workplace.  Here’s the question – given a choice would you prefer to work at a company where you can participate in a Matt impersonation gig, or a company where you couldn’t?  It is no coincidence that companies voted the ‘best places to work’ in Australia have fun work environments.

Matt’s video (whose talent is not dancing) is below for those who haven’t seen it yet.
