Humour Resource Development part two!


It's been a while since we published our last compendium of humour in our Humour Resource Development area. This second batch concentrates on humour in the workplace.

Pride of place must go to Dilbert, that downtrodden servant of the corporate world, for his experiences of the daily grind. Check out his 25 reasons not to come back from lunch, vote on the top fun things to tell consultants and trawl the Dilbert archive - there's one for each day of the week!

Elsewhere on the web:

Find out whether you're a Chainsaw Consultant, an Idea Hampster or having a Salmon Day...

In danger of falling asleep at the desk? Never fear, we have excuses for you!

Duvet days, working from home, flexible working hours - all popular moves to improve people's working lives these days. But beware the potential pitfalls of dress-down Fridays...

You've all heard of competencies - well, there's a sure-fire method guaranteed to ensure best fit between a person's aptitudes and skills demanded by the job here.

If things get really bad and desperate measures (you have to rob a bank to make ends meet, or feel the need to shoot a colleague, maybe) are called for, be reassured that prison life can compare quite favourably with the office grind.

Overworked? Find out why everyone is - it's been mathematically proven! We've also unearthed some 'office truths' about working life.

"Teambuilding brings together a group of people who don't work well together in the office, takes them to somewhere in the country and then puts them through a series of mental and physical exercises to prove they don't work together out of the office either". So says Guy Browning, who publishes a series of humorous observations on working life in the Guardian every week, a selection of which are also available on his website.

People's IT knowledge (or lack of it) is a source of much mirth - read our collection of IT trainers jokes for more funnies.
