  • Congratulations! It's now much easier to be harassed at work

     Congratulations! It's now much easier to be harassed at work
    When I daydream, I envision a workplace where people are nice to one another and everyone gets along. I also envision wearing a jet pack, flying across the city and landing, to great applause, in a Dairy Queen parking lot where I'm given buckets of free...
  • The cost of millennials job hopping

    The cost of millennials job hopping
    A perpetual motion machine is, theoretically, a device that functions indefinitely without energy from an external source. No such machine is possible, but this Physics 101 concept makes a nice metaphor for the workplace: To keep growing and running...
  • Why don't men wear shorts to work?

    Why don't men wear shorts to work?
    I hate pants. So deep is my dislike of these bifurcated leg prisons that I'd be fine ending this column right here. It would give me more time to stare menacingly at the dreaded jeans and khakis the working world demands I wear. But I'm going to be...

    Diversity fades as you move up the corporate ladder

    Targeting jobless is out of line
    All of us have had times when we've needed help. Maybe we were hobbled by a broken leg or laid up after surgery. Maybe it was just a lousy flu, something that knocked us out and made us ask another to lend a hand. That never feels good. We don't like to...
  • Benefit of downtime a real no-brainer

     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...
  • Overcoming obstacles: Or, what I learned from a cactus

    Overcoming obstacles: Or, what I learned from a cactus
    I was climbing a gorgeous rock formation in Arizona the other day, holding my 6-year-old's hand, when my foot slipped and my butt made acquaintance with a cactus. This was not one of those tame, domestic cactuses. It was an ornery, feral succulent...
  • What makes a happy worker happy?

    What makes a happy worker happy?
    The workplace advice columnist has only one natural enemy: the happy worker (Laborius contentus). This rare — some might say mythical — creature poses a threat to anyone who dispenses workplace-improvement tips for a living. But rather...

    Is the Working Families Flexibility Act really flexible?
    If we lived in a perfect world, doughnuts would be vegetables, Matthew McConaughey would have my abs and I would have his, and work would be a high-paying activity that involved naps. Also in a perfect world, a thing called The Working Families...
  • Analyzing your quitting fantasies

    Analyzing your quitting fantasies
    Hi there, readers. I'd like to talk about your fantasies. Not THOSE fantasies, you pervs. This is a family workplace column. I'm talking about your "quitting fantasies" — the daydreams we have about the most satisfying way to exit a job. Say...
