Workplace banter 'increases job satisfaction'
The friendliness of a workplace and the office banter that goes on between colleagues can increase job satisfaction, results of a new survey have shown.

The poll by People 1st revealed that 80 per cent of plumbers and electricians said they enjoyed their job because they have a good laugh at work, reports.

This is in comparison to 36 per cent of engineers and telecoms employees who said they have a joke with their colleagues.

Similarly, having music on in the workplace can help to dissolve tension and make the brain more active, as half of those asked said they did not feel stimulated in their job.

Life coach Pete Cohen said: "As well as motivating staff by giving them extra responsibility and providing access to skills training, employers should ensure the workplace is an enjoyable, fun and friendly place."

In related news, bosses who do not manage their staff properly could find that their employees have higher levels of stress and sickness, according to Management Today.
