WIRTW #320 (the "did you hear the one about…?" edition)

After the week I’ve had, I think some humor is in order. Apparently, I’m not the only one. This article from the Wall Street Journal suggests that companies can connect better with their employees and customers with levity. 

And any good HR manager can tell you that workplace satisfaction — not compensation — is the best predictor of employee retention. Humor can be a powerful tool in inter-office communications, as research has shown that it’s a useful way to cope with pain, stress and adversity (in other words, staff meetings).
Here’s the rest of what I read this week
