I had initially been at the work life office for over a year and when I first came to Work Life I felt like a valued member of the Work Life community. Towards the later part of my time there after the initial 6 months, I began to feel increasingly uncomfortable as I felt my image and persona didn’t fit the work life personality that they were looking for, and the dynamics of my business were too vibrant.
As time went on, I began to become unfairly singled out and have had my actions scrutinized unduly.
I was one told by a member of staff at work life that I needed to inform staff members of the names, times and dates of when I received any visitors. I complied as I thought this was standard protocol. Only after speaking with other worklife members I soon realized that this form of regulation was only imposed on me and no one else. When I question staffed as to why this was the case, no substantial reason was provided.
This was one of several incidents which I won’t name.
On January 2017 I came home from work to receive an email to say our membership had been terminated because we had visitors ( We are a business of course we have to meet with clients).
After 2 emails attempts and 3 phone calls attempts to the work life director to get further clarification about the issue and to discuss it formally, I stopped. They ignored my attempts and left me upset, my business in a state of disarray and our clients & staff surprised at how a business could treat people this way.
The worklife office looks good, has good facilities and some of the staff are some what friendly, however if your in with the worklife cool crowd or good friends with the staff this would determine your experience.
If my image was different In my heart I believe I would have be treated differently.
