Funny Employee Awards: Your Complete Guide to Organizing a Humorous, Entertaining, and Rewarding Recognition Ceremony
Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 10, 2008
A new book has funny awards to give out to the office staff and laugh at the funny things that happen around the office. Written by corporate comedian Larry Weaver, the book, "Funny Employee Awards: Your Complete Guide to Organizing a Humorous, Entertaining, and Rewarding Recognition Ceremony", lightens up the workplace whether for a holiday party or just for fun.
Employers need to be creative right now. Not only are budgets tighter, but employees have reason to be in a bad mood. They're worried about their jobs, their credit card debt, and their mortgage payment. Everyone's worried about the bottom line. Humor is a way to calm stress, and encourage camaraderie.
The toughest part of giving out funny office awards is coming up with ideas. Weaver has been through it and made the planning painless. As a comedian he knows how to make a crowd laugh. He's helping out struggling office workers by giving away free printable awards. Just add an inexpensive frame (think dollar store) and it's ready to present. The free printable certificates make a great gag gift for under $10.
"Funny how humor, applied in the right way, can really help the workplace. Humor can motivate people to work harder and increase teamwork. Or, it can get people in trouble with human resources. I tell you how to avoid that," says Weaver.
Here are some examples of funny awards:
- Selective Hearing Impairment Award - For Only Hearing What You Want to Hear.
- Baryshnikov Award - For Most Skill in Dancing Around the Issues.
- Raisin Pay Award - For Most Deserving of a "Raisin" Pay.
- Kool and the Gang Award - For Excellence in Group Work.
The book has 101 professionally designed awards in PDF format that can be easily printed on the office printer. The awards poke fun, recognize accomplishments, and make reference to pop culture and cartoon characters.
