All About Work’s Summer Break

So far, summer in my part of the world has been unseasonably hot. So All About Work is going to take a couple of weeks off, and I’m going to find some shade to sit in and to kick back for a while. Wherever you are, enjoy the weather!!

All About Work will be active again around the second week of September, which means that I won’t be making my usual post about Labour Day. Based on what’s happened in past years, I’m sure that Labour Day will generate more than enough news to reflect on when I return. But in the meantime,  I hope All About Work‘s readers will remember that work and organizations are newsworthy and important not just on Labour Day, but all year long. See you in September!

All About Work’s Second Birthday

The blog has received over 45,000 hits during those two years, from more than 175 different countries. The most popular posts have been:
