In his first book, Lead with a sense of humour, the author defends humour as the most undervalued skill in the professional world. He explained its benefits in different areas (communication, creativity, stress and conflict management) and he taught how to use humour effectively at work. The purpose of Divertirse trabajando (Having fun at work) is to discover how the most desirable companies have achieved this goal and have commercialised fun, making it into a corporate value and a unique demeanour of its professionals. The heads of these businesses have combined two elements which seemed in the past to be mutually exclusive - fun and work - and have made them into a unique selling point when attracting and retaining the most scarce of resources: talent.
