|Office Romance - Proceed with Caution!|
|While office romance can occur at any time, it seems that the month of February, and especially Valentine's Day, focuses a bit more attention on the issue. And the issue for organisations is whether or not their managers should or should not interfere in the private lives of their employees. But, is a romance at work really a private affair? The answer is, sometimes yes and sometimes no.|
|Work Smart, Not Hard - Sure, But How, Exactly?|
The latest advice we hear from the business gurus is "Work smart, not hard." Yes, of course; that makes sense. But what does it mean? What exactly should we do to work "smart?"
Working smart means being effective - focusing on the results we're after, not the process we use to achieve them. Don't mistake activity for effectiveness. You can stay busy all day without accomplishing anything important. We only have a limited amount of time and energy, so we need to use those resources in a smart way. Use them for the things that make a difference.
|Typing To Avoid Carpal Tunnel Syndrome|
|Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or CTS is very common for people that type frequently while they work. It is also common for people with jobs that require a lot of repetitive movement with the fingers, hands and wrists.|
People with diabetes, thyroid disease and rheumatoid arthritis are more prone to developing CTS as well. Certain things should be done to help prevent the disease as it can seriously affect your ability to work and enjoy life.
|Next Interview Face of Petites Collection - Rachel Stevens|
|British fashion brand Next have recently launched their Spring Summer petite collection, modelled by the stunning Rachel Stevens, who is a perfectly proportioned 5'1. Are you under 5'3 and need some help when it comes to shopping? Are you searching for that perfect petites maxi dress or pair of high waisted jeans but struggle with the length?|
|Office Work Can Be a Thankless Task|
When was the last time your boss said thank you? If you’re struggling to remember then you’re not alone.
A survey of 2,000 office workers reveals that nearly half of the UK’s office workers haven’t had a thank you from their boss in over a year!
