This book presents academically sound and evidence-based research on workplace humor, for managers and human resource personnel. It focuses on the nature and types of workplace humor, the psychology underlying it, relationship between ethnic and organizational cultures to humor, ...the consequent need to take account of context in using humor, and the benefits and dangers of using humor. Through its use of case studies - real humour incidents from real workplaces - it utilises illustration to build understanding on workplace humour enabling readers to assess their personal humour profiles and take those into account in evaluating and possibly modifying their humour behaviour. The book represents a move away from sophisticated theorizing and extensive empirical research on the topic aimed at scholars of humor, and works that take an uncritical approach that views certain forms of humor as universally good. In doing so, it presents nuanced arguments that are accessible to a practitioner readership, and a general audience.
