Wrike supported the release of a new book by Peter Taylor that focuses on the practical value of humor in the day-to-day work of project managers and their teams.
In our recent survey on working habits, good mood ranked as the 2nd strongest productivity catalyst. Over 57% of respondents said that it motivates them a lot. If we want to work on our projects in an efficient and stress-free way, jokes and humor might be a tool no less powerful than accurate plans, helpful software and many other things,” said Andrew Filev, Wrike's CEO, in his foreword to the book. “At Wrike, we are winning at a very competitive space. That takes a lot of hard work, and one of our productivity secrets is that humor is a big part of our culture.”
