The changing definition of well-being at work is a 2013 blog posting that takes a look at what constitutes well-being at work.

We should be looking at more than just our working environment:

  1. Individual lives during work and outside of working hours
  2. Groups we are involved in, in work and outside
  3. At our organization, in its entirety
  4. The society and culture we live and grow in

From Keir Clarke:

Under Joseph Stalin the Gulag was the government agency that administered the forced labour camp system in the Soviet Union. The camps were used to hold political prisoners and other convicts. The prisoners lived in terrible conditions and their slave labour was used in industrialization projects.

The Gulag Online Virtual Museum is an interactive map-based portal that includes archival research, oral history and geographical data.
