Week 1 of joining a new company.
Should I send a high level weekly update to my boss (vp)? I barely spoke to my vp this week.
Or does it look I’m showing off and childish?

Thoughts?

Maybe send a quick update and ask how you should do updates going forward.

I personally couldn't handle weekly 1x1s, but we tried to keep a cadence of every other week or at least a monthly check in for the beginning, which was the best to help adjust

I'd ask what communication cadence would work best. Everyone has a different style.

Just my opinion, State what is, ask for feedback. A weekly progress report to keep you focused, easier for review and if you are focused in the wrong area, you can get a direction push.

Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court? I started a new job and am trying to set boundaries but this is one that I cannot set as it is standard practice. In our state, an employer must reimburse you if they direct you to use your personal phone for work. It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.

I recently went on disability leave and my boss Auto forwarded my emails to my coworker. I have plenty of emails that I need to access that have to do with my getting appointed with the carriers and policies that I have signed for groups.. How do I approach this ?

Been for a company for over 2years. The executive team is very much a boy's club. There are a few women in management roles but zero ethnicity diversity there. I raised my concern to HR in feb. And they are just now deciding to do something about it. They want me (white female) to put together a diversity committee. Any suggestions on how to go about it? How to attract volunteers to the committee? I want to make sure I get the right people involved in this, to push for changes.

An employee came to me in confidence to raise concern about a colleague of hers who speaks often about guns and how many he owns, etc. Based on what she's described, I don't believe this person has been threatened in any way, but it's clear that the situation is making her feel very uncomfortable - especially given recent events. What, if anything, can I or should I do to help? The company is on the smaller side, so there's really no option to move either employee to a different team.

Help. New job offer is a $110k plus 9% bonus. Current job countered $100k plus 15% bonus. New Job is a support role which is stepping back from management(my choice) and current job is offering role that is not management role, more of still trying to create that JD which they think I will be a very good fit. Both can provide work life balance which is initially the reason why I looked outside. Thoughts?
