NYTimes to start workplace column
The New York Times Sunday business section will add a column on workplace issues next month.
The column will be written by Rob Walker, who has written about technology, business and culture for a variety of publications, such as The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, The New Republic, Fast Company and Wired, as well as the public radio program Marketplace.
“The Sunday Business section is already known as the place for the Haggler, our witty, effective consumer help column by David Segal,” Sunday business editor Vera Titunik about the new column. “Rob Walker will bring a similar spirit of smart, common sense thinking to workplace advice.”
From 2004 to 2011, Walker wrote the Consumed column for The New York Times Magazine, addressing consumer culture, design and marketing. He currently writes a tech column for Yahoo News as a contract writer.
In a short item online, the paper states, “Whether you’re wrestling with a career issue, trying to finesse delicate office politics, or are just flummoxed by one of the countless workaday irritations of life on the job, send your questions to email@example.com.
“You can request that your name be withheld for publication, but we may need to reach you for clarification, so please include your name and daytime contact information.”
