I have been at my job going on 11 years. My previous job I was there for 20 until I was laid off. The job was great in the beginning. I was doing customer support but became the trade show coordinator. Well business was sold from family to a investment company. People jumped ship. They were replaced. My roll with the shows became less and less. I was no longer allowed to go to them because the new regime did not feel I was needed. Then covid hit. My role in customer support started to grow well shows went away. Getting back to business people have come and go several times over. I feel like even though I am told I am an asset I dont feel like it. Maybe I am not a good fit there anymore. Maybe it’s me. Or perhaps l am burned out.

Seeking some advice. I am being asked by my supervisor to carry out activities which may erode my personal capital. How do I respond or any advice on how to do the things being asked without eroding my personal capital?

I filed a complaint with HR.
I was immediately removed from the schedule , and HR told mgmt to remove me for another month until concerns with boss get resolved and the situation blows over. Mgmt is calling it "HR Compliance." Ive stayed in contact about return to work. Found out Mgmt would like to transfer me. I asked about working at original location and was told bc HR Compliance there are very few shifts available. I asked when will it (complaine) will be over and have been ghosted.

Hi all, I have a dilemma and can use some sound advice.
I got to interview for a great opportunity (I was laid off in Feb, so have been in the hunt for a while) I think I will get this role bc of my experience and bc the recruiter told me the person hiring saw my resume and called him on Memorial Day to get me in the phone.
The job is what I used to do so I'm sure I will excel. The problem is, it's hybrid night and weekends.
I can go into the office no issues on Fri and Sat night but, because I have a 3 year old, I can't do the other nights bc my husband also works nights and we would have different days of going in.
While he would be able to help with our kid, I'm afraid they may give me a hard time and I haven't yet had the 2nd interview to be able to disclose it.
My question, what is the best way to bring this up? I really want and need this job so I don't want to pass it up. Just extremely nervous about it all.
Thanks in advance!

I'm looking to learn more about change mangagement, specifically helping to 'lead' or facilitate in this situation.
Any suggestions on where to start other than a random google search? Thanks.

My Supervisor is too friendly with my colleauges (her reports).
I know that I'm not out of line, as this is so unprofessional. I have a supervisor (she is the manager of the department) who manages 3 of us. I'm relativly new and the other two (both female) are extremely close and "BFF-like" to our supervisor (also female). The three of them share inside jokes all day, and my supervisor constantly takes walks/goes to lunch/coffee with the other two, leaving me alone to deal with our walk-in clients. I've had several talks with my supervisor about this, as well as our manager. He's tried to talk to her (she doesn't "get it," he says) but still doesn't think anything of her actions with my colleagues (he even asked HR if there was a policy for such). It's outright favortism, and it's created so much angst that I have been getting physically sick, and of course, feel emotionally bent. I've never experienced this in my career, and I know that it's morally and professionally wrong. I've done all that I can think of (to include documenting everything). I am beyond miserable and am ready to quit at any moment. It's very, very obvious that my supervisor doesn't want me (she even told me that I was not a part of the team...ouch!) and is more upset with me now that I've spoken out. This feels like high school!
