why work doesn't have to suck


there seems to be a consensus right now that work is the devil, that it's making us all ill with burnout and driving us toward an early grave.well, i disagree. to me, work is brilliant. work is life.some people might think that this is sad, but i can sincerely say that i live to work, not work to live. i can guarantee now that if i am in any fit state to have any last words, they will be: "if only i had spent more time in the office."as a good american president once said:"far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing" (theodore roosevelt).actually, roosevelt's last three words ('work worth doing') is the important point.work that one believes is worth doing is work that is fascinating, stretching, and rewarding, that stimulates the cur...






dealing with a racist work environment


if you want to keep your job and don't want to lie, your last remaining option is basically not getting involved.engage with them professionally, make sure to communicate a lot about your actual job and show passion towards your work, but whenever they try to pull you into a discussion that makes you uncomfortable, respond only with "i'm sorry, that is not a topic i will discuss at work."then, try to guide the discussion back to work.all that said; a startup that spends more time on racism than productivity isn't going to last.






do people live up to our expectations? – signal v. noise


piotr asks:do you sign up to the adage that people live up to our expectations (both at work and in life?that’s a great question. and my answer today is different than it would have been a few years ago.like many, i used to think people live up to the expectations you set for them. expect them to do well, and that “empowers” them to do well.but really, isn’t that wildly egotistical? that it’s your expectations that determine if someone else does good work? perhaps with a child this makes sense, but i don’t think it applies to well formed adults.people do great work because that’s the kind of work they want to do. they care about the work, they care about themselves, they care about the people they’re working with, and they care about the people they’re doing the work for....






interviewing - working on live dev code in the interview process: ethical?


i am going to take a different stance here. let's compare this to the hiring process of a fancy cafe or restaurant. at least in europe, you get a work contract in these places, and a full salary, like in any other job. a lot of restaurants (maybe the less fancy ones) mostly use employees that are not always fully trained, but rather work with students as waitresses.in germany it is not untypical to ask potential hires to come in for a shift before signing the work contract. you would essentially need to bring your own uniform (like a white shirt and black pants/skirt) and work there for one shift, possibly during an event they are hosting, or something else with enough work load to see how you are doing. of course you would have to ask a lot of questions, and get to know some things, like.






ibm is ordering its work-from-home employees to stop working from home


considering a work-from-home policy for your workers? it’s certainly a popular move. in fact, about 25 percent of u.s. workers do some or all of their work from home, according to a gallup poll. but wait, you may want to reconsider. some of the country’s largest and most innovative companies are moving to bring their work-from-home employees back to the office. ibm is the latest example.over the past few years ibm has “co-located”, or brought back to the office, former work-from-home employees in its design, security, procurement and large parts of their information technology departments, as well as the teams that work in the artificial intelligence watson service and cloud development initiatives.  now, according to this long-form piece in quartz, it’s time for the 2,600 peop...

i was discriminated against at work and now i'm working to end it


three in ten young women experience discrimination when working or looking for work. i am one of them. like the other women responding to the young women's trust survey that uncovered this shocking statistic, i was treated differently at work simply because i was born a woman. when i was 17 i found myself in a council property with a young baby and nothing but ambition. i was alone and knew my best hope of escaping deprivation was to work hard. we are told we can be anything we want - all we have to do is work hard. using this idea, i applied for an apprenticeship in construction. the pay was very low but i knew it would be the first step to becoming financially independent as i raised my son. i knew too that learning a trade would not just help me in the short-term, but would offer me a .

gender - is the term "man hours" appropriate for the workplace, and if not, how


"man hours" is a unit for an amount of work done, measured in such a way that (a) it's easy to determine how many units a person can do in a week, and (b) it's easy to determine the cost of the people doing the work. so yes, you do produce "man hours" of work. you could also say that you produce "woman hours" of work, and that all the men in your team produce "woman hours" of work. i don't think you should feel sensitive to the term. now if your man hours are valued less than other people's man hours because of your gender, or if you get paid less per man hour than someone else because of your gender, now that is something that you should feel very sensitive about. or look at it this way: clearly by using the same term "man hour" whether it's a man's work or a woman's work...






what six weeks of work looks like – signal v. noise


who ran the projects?at basecamp, each team runs their own projects. we don’t have dedicated project managers. generally the designer takes the lead (since nearly all work here at basecamp starts with visual design), but sometime a programmer leads, or there’s truly equal leadership throughout.who decided who worked on what?the core product team of 4 programmers and 4 designers figured it our themselves. david, ryan, and i put together the big picture plan for this cycle (with input from a variety of people), and then the teams themselves divvied up the work and made all the calls and adjustments required to get it done on time.did everything ship at once?no — we ship when things are ready. we don’t hold work to ship in big single releases. we work in six week cycles, but the...

resistance - why does ohm's law not work for vacuum cleaners?


why does ohm's law not hold for vacuum cleaners?it doesn't work for essentially the same reason newton's laws don't work for resistors (if you apply a force \$f\$ to a resistor of mass \$m\$ which happens to be soldered into a circuit, the resistor will not accelerate with \$a = f/m\$, as the solder joints will hold it back)†. or, as an even more absurd example, for the same reason asimov's laws of robotics don't work for celestial bodies.all laws, certainly all physical laws, only work for a particular, well-defined setting. ohm's law (in its simplest form, which is what a multimeter assumes) works for idealised resistors. it so happens that a water kettle behaves pretty much like an idealised resistor, and obviously the resistors you use electronic circuits do as well.‡ ...






revealed! millennials most unhappy with their work-life balance


did you know, people in their late 20s and early 30s are most unhappy about their work-life balance than any other age group. a study finds that expectation from employers to work outside normal hours is the major reason for people aged 25-34 for being unhappy with their work-life balance, reports the independent.the findings, published in international internet-based market research firm yougov poll, reveal that one in five 25-34 year-olds and around one in six 18-24 year-olds are unhappy with their work-life balance.the results indicated a stark divide between men and women.while 43 percent of men said that they are paid for overtime, only 30 percent of women claim that they get extra money for extra hours.“the issue of maintaining a healthy work life balance is a key to both employee...






hours - is the perception of working late different to that of coming in early?


to answer the question, you need to place yourself from the point of view of the perciever, and wonder who perceives your actual extra time. i'll ume you're not bragging about it, just doing the extra hour. long story short : most people won't know.if the perceiver is working 9-5 ...then he won't see anything before 9, and anything after 5. for all he knows, you're doing 8:59 - 5:01. he may think you're punctual and professional, that's it. whether you work an extra 2 minutes or an extra 2 hours is irrelevant for him. if the perceiver is working extra time, but not at the same time as you ...example : you decide to work 8-5 and he works 9-6. then you only see each other during the 9-5 timeline. then, you will not see each other's extra work. you will not, yourself, know that he is overwork

cutting employment and support allowance won't help britain back to work


today sees the introduction of the latest in a long line of welfare cuts that affect some of the most vulnerable.employment and support allowance (esa) is the main benefit for people who are out of work and suffering from a health or mental health condition. from today, new claimants of esa who are placed in the work related activity group will receive £73.10 a week, the same amount as a claimant of jobseekers allowance, and a cut of nearly £30.the government argues this is necessary to 'remove the financial incentives that could otherwise discourage claimants from taking steps back to work'. according to this logic, the more you cut benefits, and the more you push people into poverty, the greater the incentive for them to work. the government claim this cut will save £450 million a y...






remote employees are way more productive than office dwellers


want to make employees work better together? let them work separately, from home.it may sound counter-intuitive, but employees are apt to work more efficiently and collaboratively when operating remotely, a new study released tuesday by video and voice collaboration technology company polycom, inc. and human resources executive network and research firm future workplace found. modern employees are expressing a growing need for flexible workplaces, the survey of more than 24,000 workers concluded. some 62% of people are already taking advantage of flexible working practices and 98% say “anywhere working” has a positive impact on productivity.remote work offers benefits that are rarely discussed, including better communication, improved work-life balance, and more flexibility with child ...

palestinians told to boycott online israeli work permits


labour ministry says the swindlers are a “highly organised” group who profit from the desperate situation of their fellow palestiniansdubai: the palestinian labour ministry has asked its citizens to boycott buying illegal israeli work permits online peddled by money-hungry swindlers hoping to make a quick buck.the west bank suffers from high unemployment — around 43 per cent of its residents aged 20-24 are jobless.as a result, around 110,000 palestinians legally work in 1948 areas and around 40,000 work in israeli colonies.but the stifling situation forces thousands of palestinians unable to obtain a work permit legally, to buy expensive illegal work permits.they often end up doing high-risk odd jobs mostly as labourers which opens them up to exploitation as they have no legal rights...
