London, Mar 24 : Pulling an April Fool's Day prank in the office may not be such a bad idea after all, for it not only boosts staff morale but also cuts stress.
According to a report by executive jobsite TheLadders.co.uk, playing a prank on a colleague on this day can "encourage creativity and teamwork".
Some favourite pranks are unplugging a keyboard, moving the contents of a desk, and fibbing it's "daft shirt day".
"anything goes and strict protocol takes a back seat. (A prank) gives the office a shared experience outside of the workload," The Sun quoted Sarah Drew of TheLadders.co.uk, as saying.
