Sklover Working Wisdom Feedback Thank You

Lately we have received a lot of wonderful feedback . . . hope you don’t mind our sharing one recent example with you:

Dear Alan:

I have been facing gigantic problems at my workplace for the last 5 years. My employer is very powerful.

Your logic, intelligence and the structure of your thoughts has helped me during this difficult time. I finally defeated them with their own weapons.

You saved me and saved many inhabitants of this country.

I need to gather more courage and perhaps one day, I will share with you the details of this Odyssey.

At the moment, I just want to express my immense gratitude. Thank you for providing a valuable resource for us (the employees).

Sklover Working Wisdom Testimonials

Lately we have received a lot of wonderful feedback . . . hope you don’t mind our sharing one recent example with you:

 
Dear Sklover Team,

I recently found your website, and used its information and guidance. It is in my opinion, based upon my professional experience and research, that without exception, Mr. Sklover (and his team) have produced the most impressive and complete compendium of freely available information, sage guidance and, most importantly, actionable behaviors on employee empowerment and self-protection. This is a superlative professional accomplishment.

Regards,

V.M.

Lately we have received a lot of wonderful feedback. . . hope you don’t mind our sharing one example with you:

Dear Vanessa (Mr. Sklover’s Assistant),

The night before last I stumbled across Alan’s website as I was looking for the right way to leave my employer after a recent demotion.

I landed on the page outlining the meaning and situations surrounding involuntary resignations and knew that was the critical term I needed to leverage my terms.

It worked, and they offered me the severance package I asked for.

Without the stars aligning and finding Alan’s website, the departure would have been extremely stressful and financially difficult. Please extend my deepest thanks to him and I will definitely be in touch should I need his services!

Happy Holidays and thanks again!

All the best

Patricia

Recently we received a truly beautiful note from a blog visitor, and decided to share it with you . . .

“Hello, Alan Sklover! You have changed my life in ways that neither you nor I could imagine. Three years ago, after becoming familiar with your blog, I called your office for a telephone consultation. I was being bullied by a new supervisor. He was threatening to place me on a Performance Improvement Plan after 9 years of stellar reviews and 3 promotions. It left me feeling emotionally wiped out, as I was anxious, not sleeping and not eating.”

“Not only did you help me in a legal and negotiating sense to obtain a severance double what the company was offering, you counseled me to focus on the important things in life: my health and my family. I began taking better care of myself, bought an RV, and have been traveling the country intermittently with my family between consulting projects. The bonding and happiness of my family is indescribable, and while I now make slightly less money, I am more satisfied being out of the rat race.”

“I have told other friends about your blogsite, and hope you can help them as much as you have helped me.”

Thank you,
Danielle,
Towson, Maryland

Dear Danielle: Thank you for your very kind words. They are both gratifying and inspiring. We strive daily to bring about positive change in the lives of our blog readers and those who consult us. Sure, the bills have to get paid, but keeping focus on the truly precious things in life is just as important. Glad we helped you do just that. Performance Improvement Plans are painful and confusing for so many people. I’m glad that – with the information and insights we offer – you’ve successfully stood up to yours. You’ve made our day!!

Best, Best, Best

Lately we have received a lot of wonderful feedback . . . hope you don’t mind our sharing it with you:

“Mr. Sklover, I cannot thank you enough for the information and advice you provide through your website. Indeed four months ago I was faced with a Performance Improvement Plan at work. I was inspired and guided by your wisdom, and successfully fought it, and preserved my position, respect and name. I was indeed very fearful and unaware of the situation I was put into until your information opened my eyes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are indeed saving lives. A very thankful worker.”

“Hi, Alan. I hadn’t meant to let so much time elapse to thank you for your thoughtful and generous response to my question last month, about working with a home care agency whose practice was to not compensate for canceled shifts. You posted a very detailed answer the next day offering several options and perspectives.

I decided that a course of action of watchful waiting (and careful documentation) was advised, until I had more time with the agency so they could see my general indispensability. I’ve since been given a better assignment, closer to home, and more challenging and interesting clients.

But I did want you to know how much I appreciate your services for and advice to the work-worn, especially in this crazy economy when we are so vulnerable.

 Best wishes!!”   

Nina

Dear Nina: Not getting paid what you deserve from your present employer is a real problem; it’s kind of “damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” You’ve used your good sense, sprinkled with a gentle dusting of insight, to prevail and prosper. I just love it!!

Keep it up,
Al Sklover

“I wanted to Thank You for taking the time to answer a question I had a few months ago concerning my employer lowering my wages and not telling me but paying me at the lower rate for days already worked. I did have to file a complaint with the West Virginia Wage and Hour Division; in return, they told me if I go through an attorney my employer has to pay me 3X the amount owed since he didn’t pay me within two weeks. I filed the papers today with the attorney. 

I think this is a lesson for all employers: don’t try and cheat your employees in West Virginia!! Thanks, again.

Dear Anita:  As my stepdaughter would say, “You go, girl!!”
