Funny Fridays Engineering Humor: Andrew Tarvin’s Humor at work

Tarvin’s comments on the positivity of work humor was part of TED talk at Ohio State University

Welcome to Funny Fridays Engineering Humor, a new feature for Design News. Every Friday we’re going to offer up some bright sunny – or sometimes wickedly dark – engineering humor to finish off the work week with a grand splash. Or at least a trickle of smirks.

In this talk Andrew Tarvin talks about how he brought humor to the workplace while he worked at Procter & Gamble. After being complimented by co-workers on how humor helped them enjoy their work, Andrew decided to start becoming a humor engineer--using humor to help people become more efficient and effective in the workplace.
