    Humor in the Workplace: Not Just HOW, But Why NOW!


    Due to the COVID-19 crisis, organizations have downsized and operating extremely trim. Never before have managers and employees been asked to wear so many hats, and do more with less. Therefore, the time to make the workplace FUN AGAIN has never been more important. People are tired of being stressed. People want to be happy, LAUGH, and enjoy their jobs again. The incredible impacts of a fun and positive work environment include less stress, higher morale, lower turnover, and even increased service levels–accomplished with LITTLE or NO costs! Join international Author/Speaker and business humorist Andy Masters in this entertaining program illustrating easy and inexpensive ways to create a fun working environment, while sharing success stories of how organizations have launched a RE-ENERGIZED culture in this ‘New Normal” global economy!
