    "business psychologist" - takes money from companies whose management are more clueless than usual, and like to blow money on stupid and unnecessary consultants.

    I am trying to figure out how exactly this was supposed to help them. :confused:

    Oh… hang about… I see… The experiment in April was filmed for a one-off TV show, Naked Office, to be screened on July 9 on cable channel Virgin 1.
    Just another piece of "reality" TV.
    :rolleyes:

    Makes me glad I'm a remote worker.

    BTW, I've never heard of the term "posing pouch" before. Makes me giggle.

    I was going to say yes, my workplace does need a morale boost. But on second though, no. No we don't.

    This is just silly. While the psychological principle is sound the application in a work environment is quite ridiculous, not to mention distracting.

    Next Friday is bring your naked spouse/partner to work day! :D

    I don't think so.

    Although, the threat of doing this might boast morale so that they don't have to do it. :p

    Good lord, no.

    We could use a hell of a morale infusion, but ... yuck.

    That doesn't subtract one dime from the worth of your first take on it :)

    To be fair, Geordies have never been that shy when it comes to exposing a bit of flesh.

    Workplace could do with a morale boost, but I think in this instance, it would only work if we could vote for certain departments to take part and others to abstain ;)
