    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:...
  • Finding your inner work identity

    Finding your inner work identity
    Even if you're off, Labor Day seems an appropriate time to think about work. Not so much the stresses and drags of it all, but the actual things we do as working people. Most of the time — either from busyness or as victims of rote behavior...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Mighty Big Aspirations

     Mighty Big Aspirations
    You often hear people say that when the job market is bad, it's a good idea to go back to school and boost your academic credentials. I have disregarded that advice because I fear it might interfere with my TV watching, but many folks — whether...
  • Making sure your job suits you

    Making sure your job suits you
    Because I am predominantly flawless, I have little need for introspection. (I'll pause a moment to give you time to agree. Feel free to applaud.) Of course there's always a slight possibility I have room for improvement, particularly if "crippling...
  • Weighing employee wellness programs

    Weighing employee wellness programs
    As a couch enthusiast of some renown, I'm generally opposed to any form of mandated physical exertion. Our bodies know it's time to exercise when the guilt of not doing so outweighs the pleasure of eating ice cream in a comfy chair, or when said chair...
  • Is your workplace ageist?

    Is your workplace ageist?
    Suppose I'm a business — and what a handsome business I'd be! — that's interviewing people for a job opening. There are two finalists, one 27 years old, the other 52. They have similar qualifications, albeit the older candidate has more...
  • Work assignment: Just be human

    As regular readers of this column know, my last vacation involved a cactus and the unfortunate perforation of my buttocks. (Thank you for all the sympathy cards.) So I'm pleased to report that on a recent trip to Disney World — aka "Mickey Mouse's...
  • Liar liar, officepants on fire

    Liar liar, officepants on fire
    That's a good point! (No it isn't.) I'd be happy to join the team! (I'd rather be eaten by wart hogs.) Your cake is delicious! (Thanks for the food poisoning, Julia Child.) These are but a few examples of the lies we tell at work. Most aren't...
  • We're drowning in studies about the workplace

    We're drowning in studies about the workplace
    A new study has found that an employee's efficiency increases by more than 200 percent when that person is given the option of sitting in a chair made of milk chocolate. The study was conducted by me, on behalf of my new company, ChocoChair Inc. (Our...
