Did you know that laughter can make you more productive at work? Research has shown that companies that actively promote positivity and laughter are rewarded by staff who work harder.
Loneliness and isolation caused by the pandemic have made it harder than ever for workers to find the time for laughter - especially those who are working from home. Remote workers have fewer opportunities to blow off steam with their colleagues and can often find themselves fed up with monotonous and isolating routines.
With experts predicting that companies will continue to operate remotely into the future, it is more important than ever for your company to promote laughter and fun in the workplace. Laughter builds bonds between colleagues, encourages positive and innovative thinking, creates better communication, and eliminates negative attitudes. The result of which is increased productivity and profitability.
One4all are delighted to partner with AIBF to host a special session in our Leadership Series on "Laughter in the Workplace ''. Together we want to raise awareness of our Shop4Crumlin initiative and make the lives of the patients at Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin, a little bit brighter, one giggle at a time.
When: Friday, 3rd Sept 2021 | 12PM - 1PM
Panelists: Sabina Brennan (health psychologist, neuroscientist, author of Beating Brain Fog and host of the Super Brain Podcast.) & Terry Spence (Director, B2B Sales, One4All)
