We recently welcome 20 international experts and early career scholars for our first annual winter workshop on workplace humor at the University of Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland. Cecily Cooper (Miami Business School) and Brad Bitterly (Michigan Ross) presented their recent workplace humor work and gave feedback for management scholars, while Paul McGhee (Professor Emeritus) and Tracey Platt (University of Wolverhampton) presented their thoughts on the humor habits and gelotophobia and gave feedback for psychology scholars. Thanks again to everyone for their participation and active engagement!
For a summary of the key takeaways, see here. This was created to enhance long-term learning from the event but also as an inclusion initiative for interested persons who were unable to attend.
This interdisciplinary workshop was organized by Jennifer Hoffman (UZH Psychology), Christian Kastner (UZH Psychology), and myself (UZH Business), and funded by a gracious grant from the UZH Graduate Campus.
