You've found Heigh Ho — the spunky, evidence-based newsletter that makes sense of work and working life. Subscribe for free.
There are so many voices talking about work: HR and business experts, thought leaders, researchers, and, of course, workers themselves.
Heigh Ho is the newsletter, published by Bob Merberg (with 25+ years as an employee wellbeing leader), that weaves these perspectives in an offbeat, informative, and practical way.
Heigh Ho is for you if you’re someone who thinks about work — as a worker, a manager, an HR leader, a labor advocate, or even an advocate of post-work (sometimes called “anti-work,” and, yup, Heigh Ho is the only place you’ll find post- and pro-work commentary side by side).
Previous articles explore a range of evidence-based topics that offers something for everyone, like:
How does listening to music on-the-job affect work?
What happens when job holders are expected to smile even when they don’t feel like it?
How do early job experiences shape future working life?
How does unpaid domestic work affect women’s mental health, financial wellbeing, and return-to-office?
One of Heigh Ho’s initial series looks at work through the lens of the Disney classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Check it out.
Unlike most work-related media, Heigh Ho doesn’t focus exclusively on “desk workers.”
It’s a big world, with people working in stores, factories, restaurants, hospitals, fields, mines, roadways, and construction sites. We’re not properly talking about work if everyone (including office and home-office workers) isn’t included.
