Being a health insurance broker is all about plans and numbers and sales calls, so you might not think about inviting your broker to explain benefits to your employees. You should rethink that. A report from Harvard University estimated that people spend 1.1 billion hours on health care issues, which is a tremendous burden. Understanding what insurance you need and how your insurance works can cut down the amount of time you have to take away from work to handle health care.

A reader writes: I don’t really need advice, but I thought this level of WTF-ery might interest you. My workplace just announced a Valentine’s Day Singles mixer. Maybe I’m just a prudish weirdo who likes to keep work and personal very separate, but it really strikes me as odd, and almost like they’re encouraging us to date one another…?
