Rila Thomas Staff asked 5 months ago
I really hate to say this but my boss seems to favor the new girl in the office. I've been here for years and I feel like my hard work is going unnoticed. It's starting to affect my morale. What should I do?

If you think your boss is showing favoritism towards someone else in the office, the best thing to do is to talk to them about it. Approach the conversation in a calm and professional manner. Avoid accusatory language and try to focus on how you're feeling instead. For example, you could say something like, "I've noticed that you've been working closely with Jane lately and I'm feeling a bit left out. I just wanted to let you know how I'm feeling and see if there's anything I can do to change the situation." By having this conversation, you're giving your boss the opportunity to explain their actions and hopefully address any concerns that you have.
