    How social media might make you more efficient at the office
    I may be America's most-beloved workplace advice columnist, but I am not a master of efficiency when it comes to work. I'm easily distracted and routinely succumb to the siren song of social media. (I'll give you a moment — it's always hard to...

    Pros and cons of raising the minimum wage

     Benefit of downtime a real no-brainer
    You're sitting in front of a computer screen, trying desperately to write the greatest workplace advice column in the history of the world and it's just not coming to you. Then you step away for a few minutes (hours) and occupy yourself with something...

    LGBT ally groups can improve an office
    As human beings, we are at our best when we can be ourselves, when we live without fear of judgment or the pressures of putting on airs. As workers, logically, it's no different. An employee living authentically, unencumbered by the distractions of...
  • Don't be afraid of love in the workplace

     Don't be afraid of love in the workplace
    Mention love at the office and minds go to tawdry affairs, lines crossed and calls to human resources. People see love as a squishy emotion, one that breeds conflict, a distraction. So it has largely been drummed out of the workplace. That's a shame....
