A one-of-a-kind workspace- a space for you to vent, discuss, laugh, jiggle (oh you will jiggle) & find a common ground for all crazy experiences that we women have gone through/ going through/ have witnessed others going through in their corporate workplaces. I have a whole lot of them to share be it screwed up bosses, annoying HR experiences and all things work related which make us go arghhhhhh and I’m sure you have lots too!! 😉I promise you-nothing will be mundane, nothing will be sugarcoated or filtered and nothing will be ‘sanskaari’! Hop on with me on this quirky, thrilling, mad roller coaster of most obnoxious experiences – coming from me sassyhrlady- a HR professional with 15years of HR aka “Humor Raised” experiences!

You can state how you want it to be entirely professional according to work ethics and you don’t want to complicate things for them or you

If you like it, you can go for it. But if you want to avoid then tell him clearly. No means No. so don't avoid, just tell him in clear words

There's no need to feel awkward and embarrassed about it. Just tell him clearly that you are not interested in him and he should stop approaching you.

Tell him or her firmly, but kindly, that you are not interested and that if they persist you’ll consider it to be harassment. If they do persist, go directly to the personnel director and explain the situation. Such behaviour is against the policy of many companies.

If you're dodging him, just spill the beans. Otherwise, keep spinning the busy bee tale. I think he'll eventually catch the drift 😉

önceki iş yerimden beni işten çıkarıp kıdem ve tazminatımı vermelerini istedim. Onlar da haksız oldukları için verdiler tabi. Şimdi yeni iş görüşmelerine başladım ama bunu yeni işverene söylemeli miyim yoksa işe devam ediyormuş gibi mi davranmalıyım hiç bilemiyorum😬 ne yapacağımı şaşırdım, beni yönlendirebilir misiniz😞

I am new to my job and my colleagues are giving me extra works to do just because I am a rookie. How can I set my boundaries and let them know that I will be not doing their share of work??
Na_Dia13d
It happens, it's bullying. You must strictly tell them you can't do it. You must learn to say NO
Remind them once about the work you are actually supposed to do and dont accept more work from them! As I have experienced this before and trust me ,people really take you for granted then and think of you as a machine so its better you make your boundaries early!

I think my boss has a crush on me. He has become extremely sweet towards me, more than he is towards anybody else. But my colleagues told me the otherwise that he hates the way In work. Whom should I believe??
Office romance can lead to a lot of complications and we can't rely on hearsay for that. Be patient and observe.

Maybe he just likes you because you are a good employee, not because he has a crush on you

Feeling uncomfortable and unwelcome at work ever since my colleagues found out I'm dating another woman. Subtle comments and awkward silences are starting to get to me. What are my rights as a queer woman in the Indian workplace?
Don't feel sad; there is no fault in you. Just accept your feelings and let society understand them. You have every right, so don't worry
Anonymous9d
So first of all you are a human. you must be respected irrespective of your sexual identity. A workplace should ensure that everyone is treated equally without any kind of discrimination. Your workplace might have some policies or laws for Queer community.

There is a male coworker who constantly makes unwanted advances and flirtatious comments towards me. He keeps trying to get me to go to lunch with him, despite me turning him down politely numerous times. I'm starting to feel uncomfortable and want to avoid any one-on-one situations with him. What is the best way for me to firmly shut down his advances without creating an awkward workplace environment?
I Would say whatsoever may happen just go and confront him about it, tell him how you feel uncomfortable. If he still continues then you can report it to your HR or some senior.
Na_Dia13d
If you have told him no to do it and he is doing it again, you must complain to higher authorities

I am a mother and an educator in charter schools and ABC Youth Foundation. I host several podcast it's a huge passion of mine and I also produce I strongly feel that empathy is the glue of humanity and without it what do we have for understanding one another and being kind toward one another is what keeps Us human it's what makes it work and without it what can possibly get better you must hold on to that and remember and show it where it's needed so that people can know what it is and be able to show that same to others connecting and growing with others is within the foundations of empathy that's how the world gets better so we can understand we don't have to directly know one another we must be that change and it starts with us, we must be the change we want to see!more
