THE IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING EMPLOYEES FOR YOUR BUSINESS

The Importance of Training Employees for your Business

The vast majority of businesses wouldn’t even consider having unskilled and unqualified workers on their staff. However, it is pretty common that their workers aren’t really on par with industry standards; and there may be multiple reasons for that, and many of them have nothing to do with the employees themselves.

How Humour Makes Learning Stick

How Humour Makes Learning Stick

“I used to work at the bank, but I lost interest.”

If we agree that, at least in theory, this is a joke, you can see it works using the element of surprise. The first half of the sentence sends your mind in one direction. The second half surprises you with something unexpected.

That’s what makes a joke work. But it’s also why jokes are often hard to remember and retell.

By definition, humour doesn’t always fit into your normal flow of logic. So as quickly as the brain takes a joke in, it quickly throws it aside once you’ve finished laughing.
