Proper on the job humor is a stress and anxiety reducer, keeps work
fun and opens the door to creativity. Research some books on workplace
humor, insert a bit of humor in the company newsletters/bulletin boards
and announcements. Create spontaneous awards for those who keep their
sense of humor in tough work situations.
Remember that employees are
not robots. They need to know that their thoughts and concerns are being
listened to. Hold weekly open air discussions to let the employees
express their opinions and ideas openly and candidly. Managers should

offer suggestions should be rewarded with the satisfaction of knowing
their concerns were heard by and acted upon.
