humor at work tedx talk

We are excited to announce that Drew’s TEDx talk on Humor at Work is available online. This talk dives deep into why humor is a need to have at work, how to bring more humor into the workplace and how Drew became a Humor Engineer (he taught himself!). “Humor at Work is not about making work funny, it’s about making work fun!”

Humor at Work – Why we need more Humor in the Workplace

In the talk, given at Ohio State University, Drew talks about Humor at Work. Specifically:

  • 83% of Americans feel stressed out at work, 55% of Americans are unsatisfied with their jobs, and 47% of Americans struggle to stay happy.
  • The average person sends and receives 112 emails per day and spends 80% of their time in some form of communication.
  • People who use humor are more productive, less stressed, paid more, and happier.
  • Executives who use humor are promoted faster and paid more.
  • Laughing for 10-15 minutes can burn as many calories as 5 minutes of aerobic exercise, 10 minutes of dancing, or 15 minutes of milking a cow.
  • People with 3 close friends at work are 96% more likely to be satisfied with their lives.
  • Less than 1/3rd of people use humor at work.
