Company values tend to be similar:

  • Teamwork
  • Customer service
  • Integrity
  • Operational excellence
  • Accountability

Nothing wrong with these – they are all valid. Actually, company values shouldn’t need stating, should they? A customer experiences these, not read them in the Annual Report or on a reception poster.

But what about valuing humour as a company value? 

Organisational humour is linked to:

  • successful leadership
  • increased profit
  • great business culture
  • improved problem solving
  • reduced stress

Why not promote the value that seems to help with just about everything your company needs to be successful?
