Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the positive effects of humor behaviors used in meetings on meeting satisfaction as moderated by individual impression management. Using an online survey, we found humor in meetings is positively related to meeting satisfaction. Impression management moderated this reaction such that lower impression management led to a higher meeting satisfaction. As meeting satisfaction is an important aspect of job satisfaction, we suggest that meeting leaders incorporate humor into their meetings to promote satisfaction.
