A new survey found 78% of bosses think it's important for people to have a sense of humor at work. 22% said it's very important... 56% said it's somewhat important... and 22% said it's not important at all.
That doesn't mean you need to start telling one-liners or force it. Just joking around and laughing at other people's jokes is fine.
There are a few things you should AVOID however.
First, don't crack wise during a serious meeting. Be careful about trying to be funny or sarcastic in emails, because it doesn't always translate. Self deprecating humor is cool, but don't make fun of other people. And try not go blue.
