Anyone have an ergonomic desk chair that they love? In the market for one and overwhelmed by all the choices.
Since quarantine started, I'm doing everything EXCEPT exercising. It's super weird. I am like just not able to do it. I cook fresh healthy meals, cleaning, reading, working, catching up on sleep, pursuing my passion & side interests, started taking supplements, got a standing desk, walk around in meetings.. but NO dedicated working out. And I can't get myself to do it! Help!
Any recommendations on buying a standing desk?

Does your home office location matter for taxes if you live in a different state and never work out of the state of your home office (i.e., your time sheet doesn’t have your home office state)? Thx!
Good morning and welcome to my home office! I've got my coffee and am looking forward to responding to your questions with Zoe and Ron. I was raised by a single parent in upstate NY (far from NYC!). I've had to ask a lot of questions in my career and look forward to hearing yours!
How quiet is your home office environment? I am in a corporate practice and need quietness to read documents. I live in a courtyard facing apartment. Some people don’t mind noise but I constantly hear street noise, noise in the hallways and there are college students that live in the building. I complain about the noise all the time but my wife thinks I’m being unreasonable.
if you physically worked in 1 state but your firm has your home office location in another state, do you collect unemployment in the office home location or where you physically worked?

I'm grounded cause my husband traveled. Under a new order, returning travelers must quarantine 10 days and they should isolate from others in the household, even wear masks at home. Husband is about to return from a work trip, & he's not on board. So to stay "clean" and able to go out myself, I plan to sleep in my home office for HIS quarantine, with my air purifier on, and mask up if we are in the same room. Ridiculously inconvenient, but I do not feel it's ethical to risk infecting others.

We are having our 1st “Share the Mic” discussing: Diversity in the Workplace. Weds 12.16@12PM EST. Details: ￼￼￼While it is widely known that sexism and racism are prevalent in the corporate sector, how has that affected you? Are you aware only thirty-two white women, three black men, one Latinx woman, and zero black women head Fortune 500 companies? Did you also know some people might be surprised to learn that discrimination is also rampant in philanthropic and non profit institutions?

Hello, I am helping a client get feedback on his recent mobile app. It’s called Boredumm. You can watch unlimited videos from anywhere (right now, only YouTube) with no fees, no sign ups, no data tracking. The value of this app is discoverability: fresh and diverse content always. As you know, social media algorithms make it really hard for us to discover completely new things. This app won’t silo users but rather expand their horizons.

I recently accepted an offer for a new position at another company. The new role requires a TS/SCI clearance. During the investigation will they contact my current employer? I just accepted the new offer and I’m planning on quitting mid January and will start the new position in June. Should I go ahead and tell my current manager that I’ve accepted another position or just wait it out and deal with it if she’s contacted and brings it up before my I give my notice?
