    Looking ahead to wearable tech in the workplace
    The past four columns have been more serious than consumers of my worldly workplace wisdom have come to expect. Perhaps it's a sign of maturity, or maybe an indication that I've begun viewing the working world with greater reverence. Whatever the...

    I, robot employee
    When I envision the idealized workplace of the future, there are three things I see: 1) I'm not wearing pants. 2) I'm not physically in the workplace. 3) I'm on my couch. Sadly, our modern-day work culture continues to discriminate against pants-...

    How to navigate annual Girl Scout office invasion
    I begin this column with a controversial declaration: I, Rex Huppke, America's most-beloved workplace advice columnist, am unabashedly pro-cookie. Yes, after years of speculation in the conservative workplace blogosphere, I am formally acknowledging...

    Some disabled workers making pennies per hour
    President Barack Obama's recent promise to use an executive order to raise the minimum wage for employees of federal contractors was met with two rather different reactions. From the right, there were howls that Obama is a lawless tyrant. (He's not.)...
  • A pro-gratitude attitude

  • Dream big, work hard

     Dream big, work hard
    I hate it when someone who isn't me dispenses good career advice. Sadly, it happens from time to time, and it has happened in a big way with the publication of a new book by Josh Shipp. The book is called "Jump Ship." At first blush, it's just the...
  • 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...

    Some no-duh office party advice
    It's the holiday season and, as a dues-paying member of the Guild of Workplace Advice Dispensaries, I am legally required to weigh in on the greatest threat facing American workers: the holiday office party. I've received an onslaught of emails lately...
  • A sincere message for the jobless among us

    A sincere message for the jobless among us
    It appears that on Dec. 28, barring unexpected political action that would amount to a true Christmas miracle, 1.3 million jobless Americans will stop receiving unemployment benefits. This is to those people: I'm sorry this is happening. I'm sorry...
  • 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
    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...
