According to a recent survey, fewer than 30 percent of U.S. employers encourage humor as part of their company culture (Davis & Choate, 2014). Yet research shows that employees who have fun at work are more creative, more productive, work better with others, and call in sick less often. In other words, a little silliness goes a long way toward making your workplace a better place to be.
There is no limit to the ways in which you can inject fun into the workplace. A lunchtime karaoke party takes little time or effort, but allows employees to literally vocalize their way to happiness. Taking the gang out bowling or to see a comedy after work builds camaraderie.

Critical thinkers must take the contexts of every situation into account and think on a multi-level platform in order to come to correct conclusions.
