  • Don't vent your work hate on anonymous sites

    Don't vent your work hate on anonymous sites
    When I first heard about a website that lets people send anonymous email messages to friends, bosses or co-workers, I thought: Well, there's an idea that's not going to end well. Fortunately for humanity, it didn't, or at least it hasn't so far. The...
  • Workers should help design workplace

    Workers should help design workplace
    When I envision the workplace of the future, it looks a lot like my couch, only with several soft-serve ice-cream machines attached and a rather handsome (though not more handsome than I am) robot doing my work. Call me a dreamer if you wish, but don'...
  • Attack of the killer office chairs

    Attack of the killer office chairs
    I'm sitting down while writing this column. That's a pretty daring move on my part. You see, I recently spoke with James Levine, author of the new book, "Get Up! Why Your Chair Is Killing You and What You Can Do About It." He schooled me on the scary...
  • Helping parents is good business

    The term "work/life balance" has become ubiquitous, yet most American workers remain decidedly unbalanced. That's not to say there aren't companies doing the right thing by offering employees flexibility, paid leave and other accommodations. Those are...

    Your bad: The power to admit your workplace goofs
    Hillary Clinton recently told Diane Sawyer of ABC News that when she and her husband left the White House in 2001, they were “dead broke.” That was, to put it mildly, an ill-advised statement, given that the Clintons had earning potential few...

    Job-seeking millennials need to tell their stories
    As a big-time player in the workplace writing game, I learned long ago to give the people what they want. That was the motivation behind my award-winning 17-part series, "The Art and Craft of Napping at Work," and my recurring feature, "Work Doughnuts:...
  • Conformity vs. authenticity in the office

    Conformity vs. authenticity in the office
    If I could command every working person in America to do one thing, it would be: “Give me the rest of that doughnut.” If I could make a second command — after I finished the doughnuts — it would be: “Please be yourself.&...
  • Taking a moment to unplug, focus on happiness

    Taking a moment to unplug, focus on happiness
    I went to Mexico and read a book by a Canadian author that made me think about work in America. My vacations tend to be kind of weird that way. With a week off, I felt the need to unplug from the screens that dominate our working lives, so I settled...
  • Workers, get ready for 2014

    Workers, get ready for 2014
    As has become tradition at I Just Work Here Inc., I'm going to end the year and start a new one by turning this space over to some of the fine workplace experts I interviewed in 2013, allowing them to share advice for the months to come. I thank you all...
  • Writing your work narrative

    Writing your work narrative
    It's important to start each year with a carefully thought out list of pragmatic resolutions. My list includes: •Start a dynasty of ducks. Ride a narwhal (preferably while nude). •Watch more TV. •Learn how to write a newspaper...
  • LGBT ally groups can improve an office

    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...
