There's a Time to Be Serious and A Time for Laughter

From the great words of E.E. Cummings, "The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."

At HireVue we agree it is important to let loose and joke around with your co-workers. This blog post was inspired by the multitude of funny company wide emails that go around every once in awhile. Check them and out to catch a glimpse of our company humor.

Obviously we sometimes get a little carried away.....

Having fun is an important aspect of our company culture. Again, we like to follow the mantra of "Work Hard Play Hard" in all we do. 

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.
