About Heigh Ho

Heigh Ho is the free, biweekly newsletter, published by employee wellbeing expert Bob Merberg, that delves into the role your job plays in your daily life. This is the place to explore work… based on both evidence and audacity. Subscribe for free.

Heigh Ho features:

— Breezy storytelling about work, workplaces, and worker wellbeing.

— Light-hearted workplace comics from WorkChronicles.com.

— "Gift" links to relevant articles from The New York Times. No paywall for 14 days from the day the link is published in Heigh Ho.

— Audio versions for those who prefer to listen rather than read.

Sure, Heigh Ho explores topics like wellness, psychological safety, work from home, employee mental health… the Great This and the Quiet That. But it promises…

1) perspectives and insights unlike anything you’ll find in other newsletters, journals, conferences, or online forums;

2) consideration of all job holders. We’re not talking seriously about work if we’re not talking about people who work in retail, food service, health care, agriculture, transportation, manufacturing… and, yes — like Snow White’s seven associates — mining.

Stay Up-to-Date

Each new edition of the newsletter lands directly in your email inbox.
