Get A Life!

Get A Life! is a Web log about your work and life and next steps. This blog will cover the range of what's next for federal employee benefits, performance, management and health. It will have tips on getting ahead, changing jobs, dealing with bosses, managing new hires and getting ready to retire. The Blog will share ideas from the business community, academia, other parts of the country -- and you.

Are you stressing about stress at work? One major company recently allowed employees to bring pets to work as a way to relieve stress.

How about telework – is it becoming a snore, no movement seen (pardon the pun)? Managers still want the comfort of seeing employees every day, employees like the comfort zone of their offices and agencies don't have much extra money for it anyway. Can anything be done?

With nearly half the federal workforce nearing retirement, do you want to know more about next steps and what's going on with succession planning? Will the new Congress we have just elected make any difference in the work you do or the benefits you get?

You can offer some tried-and-true experience or information to help others. This blog will start in the new year with the topics that interest you – if you tell me about it. So leave me a comment and tell me what's next.
