On average, employees spend 5.3 hours per day sitting, which means the chair is the foundation of a healthy office environment. Because the average office chair is 7.2 years old, the integrity of the chair’s support and functionality might be jeopardized due to its age. From Everything You Need to Know About Ergonomics

A colleague used this phrase today followed by another colleague saying they had never heard it before. I was surprise because I’ve heard it used on many occasions, but that it doesn’t mean that I like it. The phrase probably dates from the mid-1990’s but…

All memories are manipulated by the passage of time, I'm aware that for this one I'm particularly conscious of that. The other evening I was talking to my parents about an event that happened when I was a teenager. In those days I played rugby at least once a weekend, but more often twice. This involved playing for both a local rugby club and for my secondary school. My Dad's recollection is that in this particular game I was playing for the scho...

Today's Office Speak appears on most buzzword lists that I've seen and rightly so. At some point in the early 1990's someone somewhere hit upon this phrase and it suddenly became popular. This is the Google Ngram viewpoint: Before then none of us were aware that there was a box that we needed to think ourselves outside of.

I've written a few post now on the impact of computerisation and automation on the jobs market: Is my job going to be computerised? Is my job going to be computerised? (UK Edition) Both of these posts highlight the jobs that are likely to be replaced by computers and/or robots. Steve Denning adds another viewpoint: The 'Jobless Future' Is A Myth. This article is primarily a response to the book The Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat ...

I've decided that it's time to call out some of the Office Speak that I hear every day, and thought I would start with this one: We need to sharpen our pencil The context for this phrase is almost exclusively negotiations. It's normally used as a way of saying that the cost of something needs to be reduced. I suspect that the history of the phrase has got something to do with people going back to look at a set of costs trying to decide which ones...

A delightful short film that highlights the wonderful array of colours that we are surrounded by everyday in those ordinary things that we don’t even notice. Via Colossal. This film is by the same team – The Mercadantes – that introduced us to Breath.

If you were born after 1990 then most of the items in this video are a mystery to you. For those of us born before that time these objects bring a sense of nostalgia.
