  • Simple, thoughtful ideas can transform workplaces

    Simple, thoughtful ideas can transform workplaces
    I have several resolutions for this column in 2015: 1. Hone the "America's most-beloved workplace advice columnist" brand; maybe get it printed on T-shirts. 2. Sell editors on in-person expose about people whose workplace is a beach-side bar in Bali....
  • How 'together' can motivate us at work

    How 'together' can motivate us at work
    If there's one thing we human beings are good at, it's finding extremely complicated and wildly ineffective ways of addressing problems that really aren't that hard to solve. The workplace, more than any other arena, highlights that skillful ineptitude....
  • Worker ants, rise up against fake office blessings!

    Worker ants, rise up against fake office blessings!
    A recent survey I conducted found that the No. 1 thing people should be thankful for this Thanksgiving is that they have an extremely wise workplace advice columnist to guide them through life. The survey had one respondent (me) and no margin of error....
  • We should do better for pregnant workers

    We should do better for pregnant workers
    If Facebook is any indication, we're a nation that celebrates pregnancies. We click like on ultrasound images, send messages of congratulations and type "OMG! So adorbs!" on photos of newborns. In the workplace, however, pregnancy is often met with...

    Why office secret Santas are the worst idea ever
    The list of Terrible Workplace Ideas is long and storied and includes a wide array of soul-devouring activities, from team-building exercises and lunch-and-learns to Hawaiian shirt Friday and Bring Your Ferret to Work Day. (I may have made that last one...
  • Income equality? Check your facts

    Income equality? Check your facts
    We live in a world of perceived absolutes. Conservatives care only about the rich, liberals care only about the poor, nobody cares about the middle class. The rich are evil. The poor are lazy. Most of us know, at least deep down, that none of those...
  • Keep your edge at work with 'rookie smarts'

    Keep your edge at work with 'rookie smarts'
    Great news for people who have no idea what they're doing at work: Your cluelessness may be giving you a competitive advantage. That sounds silly, but consider the benefits of confusion. It prompts you to work harder to make sense of things. It forces...
  • Smart people offer workplace advice for 2015

    Smart people offer workplace advice for 2015
    As another year comes to a close, I once again turn the reins of I Just Work Here over to some of the kind and quite-a-bit-smarter-than-me folks who appeared in this year's columns. I asked them to share some advice for workers, bosses and managers as...
  • Start the new year focusing on sincere relationships at work

     Start the new year focusing on sincere relationships at work
    A funny thing about people is they seem to respond best when you treat them like people. That can be a cumbersome quirk, particularly when the people in question are your employees, but the fact remains that human-to-human interaction is most...
  • Here's a tip: Stop giving your workers holiday behavior tips

    Here's a tip: Stop giving your workers holiday behavior tips
    From now until the end of the year, other dispensers of workplace advice will bombard you with monumentally stupid tips on how to behave at work during the holidays. I, on the other hand, will not. That's because I respect you as adults and believe...
  • Are book clubs the wave of the future at work?

    Are book clubs the wave of the future at work?
    Turns out, reading at work can be good for employees and the workplace. Reading, I'm told, is a good thing to do. I'm not sure I agree with that, because reading forces my brain to do thinky things, and thinky things are dangerous because they can...
