Assh&les. They’re everywhere. And they can make the workplace a very challenging place to spend eight hours. Unfortunately, it’s against the law to bitch-slap someone who desperately needs it. What to do?
Warble is a website where you can submit a grievance directly to your manager. Once enough people submit warbles about a specific offender, that individual’s boss receives a notification to alert them that there’s an issue that needs their attention.
Carolyn Holiday founded Warble after living her own personal hell.
“In my wildest dreams, I never imagined that I would abandon a stable and relatively happy life to go all in on trying to launch a (somewhat) disruptive start up to combat harmful work behavior. That is, until my own encounter with a particularly toxic boss,” said Holiday. “After going through my share of sleepless nights, spontaneous workday trips to the ladies room so I could frustration-cry in private, a deep emotional disengagement from work, and the development of chronic reflux disease, I could no longer nod at this obvious issue from a distance. I wanted to challenge it and see how I could take what I learned and find a solution that would save other people and companies from the damage toxic behavior brings.
Warble users can report on over 70+ of the most common disruptive work behaviors, including:
