Thoughts on inviting co-workers to the WR?

I'm conflicted... I've really enjoyed this platform and can think of a lot of people across my org that may as well, but what makes it great is the anonymity. I'm afraid that if I post or comment questions or concerns related to my org, my coworkers may be able to tie it to me and that could become a sticky situation.


Has anyone else struggled with this dilemma? What are your thoughts on inviting coworkers to the WR?

I got invited by a co-worker to join the WR...since then, I haven't slept or bathed in 48 hours. Best decision I ever made. Co-worker, if you are reading this...thank you, my friend.ย

It's so hard in my office because we have an open floor plan - no cubicles, very collaborative. So if I'm ever on the platform at work, my username is right there on my screen!

Arizona, office won't open until August, senior leadership said return to office is purely optional and WFH full time is absolutely allowed

I made a post about having a big interview coming up. Literally THE NEXT DAY I get a call from my boss telling me that there are rumors that I'm leaving and resigning. She heard it from national/regional mgmt and they named names as to who was talking. I had told NO ONE. At the time there was only one person in the WR who worked at my firm.ย 

Not hard to figure out.ย

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I invited my co-workers but they also don't give a shit. Sahil and Corp might have nuanced opinions here. I do think that as more people join the community, this issue will go away.

Very true. I've invited a few who are like-minded with me and I'm comfortable with that. Just concerned about who all it could come after them.

I added my coworkers on here, and also just made a post about how I keep a call list of companies that don't answer to boost my calls.ย  I say... send it

I don't want to do it. Due to my location and nature of my business it would be pretty easy to figure out who I am if you knew me irl.

I've been pretty selective about who I invite as well.ย  Not super concerned though as long as I don't share overly detailed information in my stories. Never give out your username too.ย

I'll be honest, I've already changed my username because my original one was my xbox gamer tag and I've definitely partied up with a couple of the co-workers I referred to the WR!

I think the anonymity still exists, I invited a co-worker and all, guess it depends on how you feel about your co-worker

I was invited by a coworker, and invited another once I was in. I've soothed my own anxiety by changing my username every time one of them passes my desk while WR is up, just in case
