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.
I represented UZH business to develop and organize this interdisciplinary workshop with my super co-organizers Jennifer Hoffman and Christian Kastner (UZH Psychology). Our event was funded by a generous grant from the UZH Graduate Campus. As suggested by our title, we hope to make this a regular event. So stay tuned for details about a 2020 event!
