Office problems

You didn’t know this, but today is a completely made-up holiday called “Improve Your Office Day.”  Seriously.  That makes things like “Grandparents’ Day” and “Sweetest Day” look legitimate.

I think it might have been invented by Staples, because they ran a survey in honor of Improve Your Office Day, asking workers what they’d most want to fix around their offices. 

“Getting a new boss” didn’t make the list . . . 78% of the people surveyed said that they’d give their boss a letter grade of “A” or “B.”

44% would eliminate office politics.

41% would allow telecommuting.

 –37% would upgrade the computers or other office technology.

35% would get nicer or more comfortable office furniture.

34% would provide more private work areas.

 –And 34% would want more flexible hours.
