Yesterday's Labor Day holiday was a nice way to recognize the contributions of our various workforces, but when you love what you're doing, it's not really laborious.

Yesterday's Labor Day holiday was a nice way to recognize the contributions of our various workforces, but when you love what you're doing, it's not really laborious. And if you do love your work, you're probably doing it in a Top Workplace. There are just 10 days left to nominate your for-profit company, nonprofit organization or government agency as a 2016 Top Workplace. All employers with at least 50 employees are eligible to apply.

Have you noticed a top workplace usually starts with a great CEO? Chief executive officers throughout central Ohio have been invited by Columbus CEO and the Capital University School of Management and Leadership to complete a survey that will determine the 2015 CEO of the Year in four categories. Nearly 40 outstanding nominees in large and small for-profit and nonprofit businesses and organizations will make the choices difficult, but completed surveys are due TODAY! CEOs who didn't get a survey in the mail may still be able to complete one by notifying me right away.

Nannette Maciejunes has loved her work at the Columbus Museum of Art for more than 30 years. The executive director talked with Columbus CEO about her lifelong passion for art and how the museum is preparing for opening Oct. 22-25 following a current hiatus for final touches on its expansion and renovation. As just announced, the museum's new wing is named for longtime supporter Margaret M. "Peggy" Walter.

For some dedicated central Ohio workers, Labor Day was less about getting a holiday break and more about being happy to be employed. Learn more in our October issue about companies that help find good jobs for the hard-to-employ, and why they are such good employees to have.

Here's to labors of love for all!
